The Presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Rabiu Kwankwaso has advised senators against the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The former senator from Kano State advised his former colleagues not to stir up unnecessary trouble by trying to remove President Buhari from office.
He made his opinion known during a visit to the Governor of Kwara State, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, in Ilorin.
Although Kwankwaso said he understands their worries and concerns over the issues of insecurity, he urged the senators from the opposition not to be in a hurry to impeach the President.
He said: “I don’t know the facts that they have. But as their former colleague, I want them to tread very softly.”
“They should not be in a hurry to rock the boat. Yes, I know they have reasons to be worried – I am sure everybody in this country is worried about insecurity; because some of these things could happen to anybody – even the presidential fleet was attacked in Katsina State. So, I think we need to do more.”
The Senate Minority Caucus had abandoned a plenary session over the inability of the Upper Legislative chamber to initiate Buhari’s impeachment.
Although the opposition had urged the senate to give Buhari an impeachment notice, it was dismissed by Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.
After the failed move, the opposition has given Buhari an ultimatum of six weeks to tackle the problem of insecurity in Nigeria.
