The Federal Government has reacted to the threat by some legislators to commence impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari over security challenges across the country.
Speaking in Abuja on Wednesday, July 27, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said there was no need for such an ultimatum, as the government was doing all it could to address the security challenges in the country.
Recall that senators from the opposition parties had given President Muhammadu Buhari six weeks ultimatum to address the rising insecurity in the country or face impeachment.
While reacting to the ultimatum, the minister said, “I want to assure you that the president is aware of all these and as a matter of fact, I think tomorrow there’s going to be another Security Council meeting.
So, it’s not a matter the president is taking lightly and like I’ll always say, some of the measures we’re going to take are not measures that you can discuss openly here, but we’re as concerned as you are, we’re not going to abandon our responsibility.”
The minister also described the reported threat by terrorists to kidnap the president as laughable and mere propaganda.
“As to those who have issued threats to Mr President, I think it’s more propaganda than anything. It’s laughable,” he said.
