Impeachment: Buhari, NASS Assembly on same page in tackling insecurity, APC tells Chinda

Imo guber: Over 136 hotels shut down in Imo as insecurity intensifies

The All Progressives Congress (APC) said the leadership of the National Assembly, President Muhamadu Buhari and Armed Forces which the president heads as Commander in chief are on the same page in tackling emerging security situations in the country and ensure the safety of all Nigerians.

APC said this reaction to a statement by the Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the House of Representatives, Kingsley Chinda.

Chinda in the statement called on Nigerians to compel their representatives in the National Assembly to immediately commence impeachment proceedings against Buhari for gross incompetence and persistent and continuous breach of Section 14(2)(b) of the 1999 Constitution which states that: “The security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government”.

But APC in a statement by its Spokesperson, Yekini Nabena said the has no intention of joining issues with a crass statement credited to Chinda, a purported factional “leader” of the PDP Caucus in the House in which he has resorted to denigrate the office and person of the President by name-calling and insults.

Nabena stated that: “Chinda’s insensitive and callous intention is to play politics with the grief of citizens in the aftermath of the recent, gruesome and condemnable killings of some defenceless farmers in Zabarmari, Borno state by Boko Haram. The APC will not join Chinda and his PDP backers on this evil and ignoble road.

“We have since learnt that Chinda does not even have the support of any of the PDP House factions he claims to head. He is a lone, rejected voice. The House of Representatives has already dismissed Chinda’s rant as illogical, self-serving and a ploy to derail the proposed visit of the President to the House”.
