Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, has said that lawmakers threatening to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari do not have the courage to effect it.
Recall that on July 27, PDP members in the Nigerian Senate threatened to impeach President Buhari if he fails to resolve the security crisis across the country within six weeks.
Speaking at the commissioning of some projects in his state today August 12, Gov Wike said the Senators who threatened to impeach the President do not have the ”balls” to do so.
According to him, ”Ordinary to override electoral act you cannot”.

NewsWireNGR recalls that, the PDP caucus in the House of Representatives has joined its Senate counterpart in issuing a six-week ultimatum to President Muhammadu Buhari to address insecurity or risk impeachment.
The Minority Leader, Ndudi Elumelu, gave the notice some weeks back, after a meeting of the National Assembly PDP Caucus at the National Assembly Complex in Abuja.
The meeting was chaired by the 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.
Mr Elumelu said the lower chamber will commence the collation of signatures to trigger impeachment proceedings against Mr Buhari if the security situation is not addressed at the expiration of the six-week ultimatum.
He noted that the lawmakers have exhausted all means to address insecurity in the country, through resolutions and security summits.
