Dachung Bagos, a member of the House of Representatives, has said the National Assembly will move to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari, if the executive does not act on its security resolutions.
Bagos, who represents Jos South/Jos East Federal constituency, spoke on Channels Television breakfast show, Sunrise Daily, on Thursday.
The house of representatives, on Wednesday, inaugurated a 40-man committee to find a solution to the country’s security challenges, including but not limited to insurgency in the North-east, banditry in the North-west, secessionist agitations in the South-east and Fulani-herdsmen crises across the Middle-Belt and several South-west states.
The committee is set to hold a four-day security summit next month.
The federal lawmaker is also the deputy chairman, Anti-Corruption Committee and member of the National Security and Intelligence Committee of the house of representatives.
He said impeachment processes will be initiated if the summit’s resolutions are not acted upon by the executive, adding that the issue if insecurity has been politicized.
He described the summit as a “last resort”.
“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 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.
“We have the power to impeach the President if he can no longer secure the lives and properties of Nigerians.”
However, impeaching Buhari is not likely, as both the house of representatives and the senate are controlled by the All Progressives Congress (APC), the party the President belongs.
