Adesina spoke on Channels Television’s “Politics Today” after the threat on Wednesday and described the threat as an empty one that cannot be carried out.

“The truth is that the minorities will have their say while the majorities will always have their way. If you know the configuration of the national assembly and the senate, those who spoke today are the minority of minorities”, Adesina said.

Adesina says lawmakers' threat to impeach Buhari is mere bravado

He described the action of the lawmakers as bravado and lamented that insecurity is not what should be subjected to bravado.

He said it is unwise to issue an ultimatum in something that is between life and death. Adding that, the senators know they cannot achieve what they have said.
