The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has commended the decision of the National Assembly to investigate President Muhammadu Buhari for alleged constitutional violations as well as his summon to appear before a joint sitting over the daily bloodletting in the country.
In a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party said that the decision is completely in consonance with the mood of the nation and the expectations of Nigerians.
According to the party, “the vote of no confidence passed on the service chiefs by federal lawmakers is a direct indictment of President Buhari, as a failed commander in chief of our armed forces, who must be held responsible for the security failures of our nation in the last three years.”
The party noted that “Nigerians are very eager to listen to President Buhari and watch him respond to them through their National Assembly members. We therefore habour no reservations in urging the federal lawmakers, as representatives of the people, not to succumb to any form of executive intimidation, blackmail and pressure to surrender their constitutional powers and duties.”
Since the matter of failed security is of paramount importance to all, we firmly demand that President Buhari take questions and address our nation in an open session of the National Assembly.
