Nigeria lawmaker from Plateau, Dachung Bagos, has said that the president could face impeachment if he refuses to act security resolutions made by the house of Representatives.
Speaking on ChannelsTV program ‘Sunrise Daily’, Dachung Bagos who represent Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency, said impeachment processes will be initiated if the summit’s resolutions are not acted upon by the Executive.
“If the Executive had implemented 30 percent of the resolution and advice the National Assembly has been giving, I can assure you we couldn’t have reached this level,” he said.
After this last summit . . . if nothing is done . . . we will call for the impeachment for the President. We have the power to impeach the President. – Dachung Bagos, Member of the House of Representatives@sunrisedailynow#CTVTweets pic.twitter.com/fsq0edFaRD— Channels Television (@channelstv) April 29, 2021
Bagos, who described the summit as a ‘last resort,’ said that the insecurity in the country issue has been politicized by the Executive and that the legislature, by virtue of its constitutional powers, will call for President Buhari’s resignation if he refuses to work on the resolutions of the House made on Wednesday, April 28.
“After this summit, if nothing is done – brainstorming, spending resources to bring out solutions – if the Executive does not do anything after some months, then definitely we will call for the resignation of the President,” he said.
