Reps Bill: President Risks Impeachment Over Late Cabinet Formation by dre11(m): 7:36am On Dec 10, 2020
THE House of Representatives is proposing compelling a new President or governor to constitute his cabinet within 30 days after inauguration or risk impeachment by the National Assembly or state House of Assembly.

The Transition and Assumption of Office Bill, 2020, sponsored by Mr Kpam Sokpo, in which the proposal is being made, was introduced at the House on Wednesday.

The bill also seeks to establish a special fund for the presidential transition committee and to also compel state governors to also name their cabinets within the same time.

It reads in part, “Subject to Sections 147 and 302 of the constitution, the President shall on assumption of office, appoint ministers within 30 days from the date he took the oath of office.

“The President shall constitute and appoint all boards of government agencies and parastatals that are due for constitution and appointment within two months from the date of his assumption of office.

“Where the President fails to comply with the provisions of this section without any justifiable reason, he shall be guilty of misconduct as provided under Section 143(2) (b) of the constitution.”

That's a good one from the NA, and it is highly commendable. We've seen some governors spent a whole year in office without cabinet, running the state on auto pilot, singlehandedly running the affairs of the state, that's pretty bad. Whereas in saner countries, they name their cabinet members even before swearing in.

But wait o, has any state assembly ever impeached any governor in Nigeria on pure constitutional breach? I guess no. The few state governors that were ever impeached we're on political grounds. Not to even talk of the almighty c-in-c.

This president has committed a lot of impeachable offences, he has violated grossly the Constitution and ought to have impeached him long ago, but the question is, do these rubber stamp NA have the balls?

Never, all attempts to impeach the best president in the world should stop. We the patriotic Nigerians don't care about any cabinet we just want Buhari to be in power because he has made Nigeria to be the jewel of Africa. We don't care if we suffer just give us Buhari!

Sai Baba forever!
