A federal lawmaker representing Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency, Dachung Bagos, says impeachment processes against President Buhari will be initiated if the security summit’s resolutions are not acted upon by the Executive.

The House of Representatives on Wednesday, had inaugurated a 40-man committee to find a solution to the country’s security challenges, in a four-day security summit to be held in May.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, the lawmaker said, “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.

Instead, he added, the insecurity issue has been politicised by the Executive.

He described the summit as a “last resort.”

“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,” he said.

“We have the power to impeach the President if he can no longer secure the lives and properties of Nigerians.”
