Members of the House of Representatives elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party have backed their colleagues in the Senate over the call for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari over widespread insecurity in the country.
Recall that the senators gave Buhari six weeks to resolve insecurity issue in the country or face impeachment proceedings.
Speaking at joint meeting on Thursday July 28, PDP lawmakers said the state of the country was appalling and therefore issued a six to eight weeks ultimatum to the President to solve the numerous challenges of the country or risk being impeached.
Minority Leader in the House of Representatives, Ndudi Elumelu, gave the notice on Thursday, after a meeting of the National Assembly PDP Caucus at the National Assembly Complex in Abuja.
The meeting was chaired by Senate Minority Leader, Philip Aduda (PDP, FCT), with more than 20 lawmakers in attendance.
The lawmakers held a closed-door meeting, after which Mr Elumelu briefed journalists on the resolution reached.
He stated that members of the House will also present a formal impeachment notice against the president if the general insecurity in the country is not addressed.
