The senator representing the Ondo South, Nicholas Tofowomo, has said that the Senate ought to have impeached President Muhammadu Buhari considering the insecurity challenges in the country.
Tofowomo said this during a chat with Punch correspondent in Akure, the state capital, on Friday.
The senator insisted that it was time to save Nigeria from Buhari before the country collapses.
He argued that Buhari had failed due to his inability to address any of the challenges of the nation.
He lamented over the state of the citizenry in Abuja, adding that they were constantly living in fear due to terrorist attacks.
The senator said, “Look at us in the National Assembly now. We are leaving in seven months and we are now demonstrating. Does it make sense?
“Because I am part of them, I have to join them. If you look at it genuinely, we should have done this two years ago. It is very sad.
In Abuja now, everybody is hiding. If you go to malls now, they are just like ghost towns. Even the National Assembly, everywhere is dry. Everybody has run away. Even the APC senators are angry.
The naira is falling every second. Internal security is gone. What is honourable is for Buhari to just resign. But the minister is telling us that what we are doing is babyish.
It is very unfortunate because our future is not bright. In the law school in Abuja now, they are hiding. Boko Haram has been to the school two times. The country has collapsed
You know we have a closed session on Thursday. The majority of those in the session are for Buhari to be impeached, including members of the APC.
I suggested that Buhari should be summoned to the National Assembly to come and give an account of the Nigeria Security and if he doesn’t come, we should impeach him.
This is what we should have done two years ago but Buhari has already pocketed the senate. If not, his ministry would not be saying that against us.”
