Impeachment: Chinda’s Call Is Legitimate, Says PDP


… Cautions Reps Leadership Over Threats to Caucus Leader

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has cautioned the leadership of the
House of Representatives for threatening the PDP Caucus leader, Hon.
Kingsley Chinda, for making a legitimate, valid and patriotic call for
the Impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari over his failure to secure
our  nation.

For the avoidance of doubts, Hon. Chinda is the leader of the PDP Caucus
in the House of Representatives and his call is not only constitutional
but also aptly represents the opinion of our caucus, our party, the PDP,
as well as the generality of Nigerians, including those who have fallen
victim of President Buhari’s ineptitude to secure our nation.

This threat to Hon. Chinda is therefore a direct signal that the current
leadership of the House of Representative is not on the side of the
people but has been cowed to relinquish its statutory legislative powers
for selfish reasons.

It is indeed shameful that the leadership of the House of Representative
has reduced itself to the mouthpiece of the Buhari Presidency whose duty
it is to make wishful allegations against Hon. Chinda.

It is disgraceful for the House of Representatives to blame its own
members for the blunt refusal of Mr. President’s to honor a statutory
invitation by Nigerians through their elected representatives to address
them on the heightened insecurity across our nation under his watch.

If the claims by the House leadership that President Buhari failed to
honour the invitation because Hon. Chinda called for his impeachment is
really the case, then the nation indeed lacks a leader worth his

This is because instead of stopping President Buhari, the Chinda’s call
ought to have spurred him to appear before the House and explain to
Nigerians why killings, kidnapping and other acts of terrorism and
banditry had escalated under his watch.

If indeed, Mr. President could be scared from the National Assembly just
because  Hon. Chinda called for his impeachment, how then would he
muster the courage to combat terrorists, bandits and kidnappers.

Our party holds that the  claim by the House leadership thus vindicates
Hon. Chinda and validates the call for Mr. President’s impeachment.

The PDP therefore charges the leadership of House to retrace its steps
and redeem its image by rescheduling Mr. President to appear before the
House instead of this lame excuse.
