The Members of  National Assembly have been asked to commence immediate impeachment procedure of President Muhammadu Buhari over the attack on Kuje Correctional Centre, Abuja recently.

Human Right Liberty Access, and Peace, Defenders’ Foundation (HURIDE) and Campaign for Democracy (CD) in a joint statement said that latest security breaches in the country were clear indication that President Buhari has lost control of providing leadersip to the country.

“Going by the obvious and glaring security breaches in the country  especially Kuje Correctional Centre invasion by Boko Haram insurgents and the deadly attack on the convoy of advance team of  President Muhammad Buhari’ in Daura, Katsina State few days ago we call for immediate impeachment of the president”said HURIDE and CD in their joint statement.

In the statement signed by Dede Uzor A. Uzor, Executive Director, HURIDE and Chairman, South East Zone, CD, after their meeting in Abuja,  the groups said  Nigerians have died under Buhari  more than during the  war time.

They said: “The purported withdrawal of soldiers 24 hours before the invasion of Kuje prison called for a thorough and discreet investigation.  Nigeria is becoming a failed state like Somalia, Southern Sudan and Afghanistan among other terror-infested nations”.

The groups continued :”The National Assembly has no option but to commence the process of impeachment of the President  without further delay before he hands this county to islamists and Fulanists”.

The rights groups said with the ongoing economic woes, unabated security threats like kidnapping for ransom, and attacks on the national’s critical assets  and other threats, it is obvious that the president is either confused or  playing pranks with Nigerians.

The groups which  made the call after  an emergency general meeting  in Abuja warned that if something drastic is not done now, the 2023 general election may not hold and it will spell doom for Nigeria.

They condemned the president’s penchant to always jet out of the country even  when he had a crisis at hand to deal with, saying that it showed his lack of passion for peace and stability of the country, rather was more interested in travelling abroad than working hard to restore peace at home.
