Mansur Mashi, a member of the House of Representatives representing Mashi/Dutsi federal constituency at the green chamber, has been asked to resign for allegedly abusing President Muhammadu Buhari.
Legit.ng gathered that the All Progressives Congress (APC) chapter in Mashi local government area of Katsina state made this known in a press conference, adding that the lawmaker might be recalled if he failed to do so.
Premium Times reports that the chairman of the APC chapter, Armaya’u Doka, also called on the National Assembly to suspend the member for the untoward comment.
He said: “The honourable said ‘Buhari had to leave the scene the way the late (late ex-president) Yar’Adua did,’ so that his vice, Yemi Osinbajo, would take over, and that such is the only way Nigeria could make progress at before 2023.
“The audio of what the lawmaker said is out there for all to listen to. By the grace of God, the APC will win in the 2023 general elections and the party will continue to grow stronger in followership.
“We call on the APC at the state and national level to call him to order and the National Assembly to suspend him for making such comments. If our call is not heeded to, we, as members of his constituency, have the right to take necessary action that is within the law.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that President Buhari dispatched top security chiefs to interface with stakeholders in Zamfara on the lingering security challenges in the state and the entire northwest.
