Breaking: Osinbajo risks impeachment as Senate asks him to withdraw statement on powers of confirmation


STRONG indications have emerged on Tuesday that the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo risks being impeached if the executive fails to carry out the decisions of the Senators as the Senate has asked him to as a matter of urgency withdraw his statement that the National Assembly lacks the powers to confirm nominations from the President.

The Senate has also vowed to suspend all issues relating to confirmation from the Executive until such matters of confirmation as contained in the constitution were strictly adhered to, just as it urged the Acting President to respect the constitution of the land. The Senate has also asked Acting President Osinbajo to respect rejections of nominees by the Senate.

Resolutions of the Senate were sequel to a point of Order raised by Senator Ahmed Sani, APC, Zamfara West that a letter from Acting President Osinbajo on the appointment of Lanre Gbajabiamila as the Director General, National Lottery Commission.

Soon after Senate President Bukola Saraki read the letter from the Acting President, Senator Ahned Sani raised the point of Order which later generated hot debate from other Senators.

undecided.

They want to finish us in this country o. If they impeach him how are we suppose to survive till 2019 to vote them out.

On a lighter note i think they should remove him and inaugurate Mazi Nnamdi Kanu so that he will test the mantle of leadership and realize to be a leader is not by being hypocritical.

This Buhari and APC govt is the worst ever in the history of Nigeria

Just recently, US president Donald Trump nominated Andrew Pudzer as Secretary of Labour. The US Congress turned down his nomination and immediately that became the end. Trump had to immediately forward a replacement to Congress.

It is only in Nigeria that the country's National Assembly (an equivalent of US Congress) will reject the president's nominee and members of the Executive will insist they will rather keep him in perpetual Acting capacity than doing away with him. What then was the reason for forwarding the names to National Assembly in the first place?

These people are turning our beloved country to a theatre of comedy

Buhari is incapacitated and the North must retain power. We are not surprised at all. We expected all these before now.

This is the same thing the Senate did to Ali the Customs boss and it landed them eternal disgrace.

Actually, it's a test of Osinbanjo's willpower and political sagacity. It was bound to happen sooner or later. Things like that this are expected when you assume a new leadership position. Even pastor wey dem newly appoint, witches dey sample am to sabi him logo.
