A group of opposition political parties, the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), has called for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari by the National Assembly. The call was made through the spokesperson of the Coalition, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, at a press conference.
The spokesperson cited gross misconduct and failure of the President to protect lives and property of Nigerians as reason for the call for his impeachment. He stated that life in Nigeria was so cheap that leaders don't even show empathy any longer. According to him, even people are now becoming unfeeling, since wanton killings have become the order of the day in the country and every new death is now taken for granted.
Similarly, the coalition also urged opposition lawmakers in the National Assembly to work together with patriotic members who are imprisoned in the All Progressives Congress, APC, and seeking liberation to start immediately, impeachment action on the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan and Femi Gbajabiamila, the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
This is because, according to the coalition, "They do not have respect again as several members of the executive ignore them even when they are officially summoned.
"Lawmakers are no longer respected and ignored even when they officially summon officials of the executive, because they are daily moving from office to office, begging, blackmailing and grabbing anything and everything they can grab".
The group therefore stated that it has filled a suit at the Federal High Court to seek an order to force the National Assembly to investigate several allegations of gross misconduct against the Nigerian President.
