“When this was going on it was part of the heat of those who didn’t get what they wanted and they now capitalize on the pressure of the opposition to be hard.
“It was an opposition drive, they supported it and they put the blame on the party and government.”
APC senators who are backing plan to impeach President Buhari
The majority of the lawmakers agreed that Buhari should be given six weeks to fix insecurity or face impeachment proceedings.
Aduda said there was a need to formally serve the president the notice, but Lawan ruled the FCT senator out of order.
After exiting the chamber, the senators gave the president a six-week ultimatum to tackle insecurity in the country or risk being impeached.
Presidential spokesman reacts
Reacting to the development, presidential spokesman Femi Adesina said the lawmakers are just wasting their time, noting they cannot carry out their threat.
