Why we gave impeachment notice against President Buhari- Senator Bassey


Senator, Gershom Bassey from Cross River has confirmed that the impeachment plot against President Muhammadu Buhari is real and serious.

He made this remark during an interview with  journalists in Calabar on Wednesday.

According to him, focus should not yet be on the impeachment, which, account to him is the second part of the notice.

He added that the lawmaker want to ensure that President Mohammadu Buhari act swiftly within six weeks, which is the first part of their warning.

“I think the media somehow has missed the point of our action. The point is to ensure safety and security in our country. It is not impeachment yet, but to ensure safety and security in Nigeria. That’s why we have given 6-week threshold within which we want the executive, particularly Mr President, to do something about security in our country.

“Our best hope is that the President will respond to what we are saying, to what we are doing. And at the end of six weeks, everything would have been sorted out.

“It is the part one that should be the focus, not so much part two. Part two happens when we fail to achieve part one.

“In other words, if there’s continued insecurity without the type of response that we expect within these weeks, then we move to part two, which is impeachment process proper, which is real.

“We are serious about the impeachment, but we will only get there if part one which is the actions against the situation in our country does not improve,” he disclosed.
