Impeachment Of Buhari Is Belated, Should Have Started Months Ago – Shehu Sani

Kaduna Senator, Shehu Sani has stated that the impeachment of President Muhammad Buhari should have started months ago.

Sani made the statement after opposition lawmakers on Wednesday, July 27, stated that they would commence impeachment proceedings against Buhari over the declining security in the country.

“Impeachment of the President is belated, it should have started months ago, NASS has the constitutional right to summon the President” 
Sani told Arise TV

He said that the opposition “may not be able to get required number to impeach Buhari, because members of the ruling party are hiding their faces from such actions.”

“The opposition is on a moral high ground. Nigerians may see them as their voice and representative of the plights of the Nigerian people.
” he added

Sani then added that security challenges are not about money as INEC and defence agencies are well-funded.

“In the last 7 years, over N4.2 trillion was appropriated and funded, but this has not translated to security
”, adding “It is clear to us that either the funding has not been used for the purchase of hardwares or we are buying the wrong hardware for the situation on the ground.” he said

Speaking about the ASUU-NLC protest which he participated in, Sani said;

 “This protest should continue and we believe if the govt is sensitive to the yearnings of Nigerians, it should solve this issue.”

“Their protest is a struggle to save public education, to save the future of Nigeria and to save the futures of the youth who cannot afford private universities or to go abroad.”

 “We have a budget of N16 trillion, if the government can fund subsidy with N7 trillion, they can allocate more of the budget for education.”

“ASUU have articulated their demands to reactivate and upgrade Nigeria’s university system; refusing to address these issues will come with a lot of repercussions for the whole country.”
