The Federal Government on Wednesday said it is working to quell the fire of impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari by some senators in the opposition, consisting mainly of the Peoples Democratic Party and All Progressives Grand Alliance.
Earlier, the PDP senators had called for the president’s impeachment over the lingering insecurity in the country and the FG’s inability to put an end to it.
The aggrieved senators issued a six-week ultimatum to the president to sort the situation out or be served an impeachment notice.
However, reacting to the news, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed while addressing State House Correspondents after the week’s virtual Federal Executive Council meeting, said the situation is under control.
Mohammed also commended the senators for their loyalty to the country.
The Minister said, “Resolution passed by Senator, as rightly said, it was passed when we were deliberating, but we thank them for their patriotism and their concern, but we are working round the clock, 24 hours, to ensure that the situation is brought under control.”
He also described the reported threat by terrorists to kidnap the President as laughable and mere propaganda.
