PROPOSED BUHARI'S IMPEACHMENT: An Exercise In Futility by TonyeBarcanista(m): 5:52pm On Jul 13, 2016
I was informed by a palmchat buddy of the plot by some Senators to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari, and I laughed to high heavens.

Inasmuch as I am a strong critic of Buhari, I can't be fooled by any plot or scheme to sack him from office. I neither have sympathy for Buhari nor his APC party but we have to face the truth; It is IMPOSSIBLE to impeach the President of Nigeria.
The provisions of Section 143 can NEVER be met by anybody. Even is 90% of NASS want the President out, they still won't be able to..

let me explain.... To impeach the President the following steps are needed to be followed;

1. Notice of allegation to be signed by at least 1/3 members of NASS S143(2).

2. The Senate President will forward same to the President, giving him 7 days to respond.

3. The President is given 14 days to respond to both chambers, upon receipt of his written response, members have to decide by voice vote whether or not to proceed with investigation.

4. 2/3 members of both Houses will have to vote a YES for the allegations to be investigated.

5. Should 2/3 members vote Yes, the Senate president shall within seven days cause the Chief Justice of Nigeria to appoint independent panel of seven people of high integrity that are not members of the Parliament or any public service to investigate the offence(s) levelled against the President.

6. The President shall appear in person or through a lawyer to defend himself before the panel.

7. The Panel shall within THREE months submit their report to both chambers of the Parliament.

8. Should the Panel give the President a Clean bill, The impeachment proceeding is stalled.

9. Should it indict the President, then a vote of not less than 2/3 of NASS members will be needed to impeach the President.

10. In reality, this is impossible.


WHY IS IT IMPOSSIBLE?
Assuming 100% of Legislators are bent on ousting the President, it only take the CJN to either IGNORE the request to setup seven man panel(as requested in 5) or appoint loyalists of the President that will give him clean bill and stall the Process in stage 8.

Assuming the CJN is not a loyalist of the President, the President will only need to 'FIRE'/'Suspend' the incumbent CJN and appoint his loyalist to stall the process.

The President could as well use soldiers and police to prevent parliamentarians from sitting to even consider it. REMEMBER JONATHAN DID IT TO REPS IN 2014, Heaven did not fall.

In fact, it is IMPOSSIBLE TO IMPEACH ANY PRESIDENT IN NIGERIA.

Therefore, the Senate should look for some other things to do if they are bored and shelve any planned impeachment process because it is an exercise in futility, a complete waste of time.


Nigerians shall send Buhari packing in 2019.




May God Bless Us All and Bless Nigeria

You even get time dey educate people who have no knowledge of how politics or its Nigerian version works. Apart from how PRACTICALLY IMPOSSIBLE the constitution made it, the realities on ground should instruct anybody willing to think.

GEJ that we all know as a weakling laughed Tambuwal and his friends to scorn when they threatened him with impeachment for using the IGP to teargas them and force them to be scaling fence like hopeless juveniles because he knew they were just blowing hot air.

Na Buhari with his fanatical fan base in the north some dumb people dey threaten with impeachment? Southern senators will surely be able to sign it. Na how Misau and his fellow dreamers from the North go sign that notice to get 2/3 and still be able to walk freely up north I dey wonder cheesy

The bauchi senator (is it misau?) That was almost lynched last time out comes to mind cheesy

Peradventure all the prerequisite has been met, rather than a Nigerian president watch himself impeached ; he'd rather resign.... and the last time I checked, "resign" is not a word in the Nigerian political vocabulary!!!

So, they should put our sitting allowance to better use, pulease...

they cannot even dare it.

See one of them already denying such:

The Senator representing Sokoto North Senatorial District, Aliyu Wamakko, has denied reports that allege his colleauges meet in his house to plan and strategize on how to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari. Wamakko said this in a statement issued by him on Wednesday in response to reports that say he hosts regular meetings of aggrieved members of the senate seeking ways to tackle the presidency over the ongoing trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki for forgery of the standing order of the red chamber. The statement reads: “To set the records straight, a meeting was only held in my residence towards finding amicable solution to the frosty relationship between the Executive and Legislature. “We have observed the growing disharmony between the two arms, and we resolved that finding amicable solution to the impasse will move the nation forward and give the president focus to pursue his Change Agenda. “As a principled politician, I have no cause to scheme against the president and the party I campaigned for or the cause I believe in. “Let me once again reiterate that we hold the president in high esteem, and we will do our best towards ensuring that there is cordial relationship and harmony between the two arms of government,”
