Senator Urhoghide denies calling for President Buhari's impeachment

The senator said he only called for invoking of a relevant section of the constitution and not impeachment.

The section quoted, he said, would make it imperative for President Buhari to explain his decision carried out without National Assembly contribution.

The Senator said an impeachment is a much larger process than what he called for Senator Matthew Urhoghide has denied calling for President Muhammadu Buhari’s impeachment. 

The lawmaker representing Edo South senatorial district in the Nigerian Senate, who moved the motion question the legality of President Buhari's withdrawal of $496m from the Excess Crude Account to by military aircraft from the United, said he was misquoted. 

Punch reports that the Edo lawmaker said this in a chat with pressmen at the Benin Airport in Edo state. 

Urhoghide said he never called for President Buhari's impeachment but only urged the Senate to invoke the relevant section of the Constitution so that President Buhari could explain why he took the decision to purchase the 12 aircrafts. 

President Buhari finally reacts to Obasanjo’s letter He said: “The President had a good intention of buying the equipment but the procedure was wrong. And he too has accepted that it was wrong. We (lawmakers) swore to uphold the Constitution. “An impeachment, if you check Section 143, is a long process. 

The first thing is you have to do an investigation and then correspondences will be entered into; the President has to be written by the President of the Senate, who is the chairman of the National Assembly. “Then, of course, he (Buhari) too will reply and this has to go on for a long time. We have not reached this issue of an impeachment. Nobody on the floor of the Senate mentioned that the President should be impeached.”
