Reps To Punish Lawmaker, Kingsley Chinda, Over Call For Buhari's Impeachment by ijustdey: 5:16pm On Dec 21, 2020
Chinda, in a press release on December 7, called on Nigerians irrespective of political party, tribe, or religion to compel their representatives to commence the impeachment process against the President.

The House of Representatives has said it will take disciplinary measures against one of the lawmakers, Kingsley Chinda, who called for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Chinda is the leader of the Peoples Democratic Party, House of Reps Caucus, and is representing Obio/Akpor Federal Constituency in Rivers State.

The House Majority Leader, Ado Doguwa, during plenary on Monday, said Chinda was not representing the position of the PDP caucus of the House as he claims and is acting alone.

He also noted that the President's decision not to honour the House was due to the utterances of the lawmaker calling for his impeachment, and concerns that the President would be embarrassed If he honoured the invitation.

Chinda, in a press release on December 7, called on Nigerians irrespective of political party, tribe, or religion to compel their representatives to commence the impeachment process against the President.

The lawmaker's call for impeachment is not unconnected with the rising cases of insecurity being witnessed across the country.

However, House spokesman, Benjamin Kalu, described Chinda's call as the "opinion of a single member of the opposition party in the house."

He said calls for impeachment were not logical as the President is yet to appear before the House to explain what his administration is doing to address the security issue.

"If this call came past president's visit for the failure to dialogue well enough in securing solutions or due to his inability to put our positions to use, it would appear logical.

"Unfortunately, this call is not only illogical, but it also appears as a tool mischievously thrown up to disrupt the agenda of the coming visit with all it sets out to achieve in the spirit of nation-building which remains the mantra of the 9th Assembly and is considered a joint task," Kalu added in a report by ChannelsTV..

“Patriotism is supporting your country all the time and your government when it deserves it.” ― Mark Twain.

“A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.” - Edward Abbey
So when has it become a crime to call for a president's impeachment if he is not living up to his constitutional responsibilities?

There were calls for OBJ and Jonathan to be impeached but heaven didnt fall.Even Buhari himself once called for initiation of impeachment proceedings against late President Umaru Musa Ya'Addua for alleged offenses of which he himself have committed far worst today.

Unfortunately, Nigeria have a useless rubberstamp NASS leadership that has became a vestigial part of the executive simply because it was handpicked by same executive.

Even supreme court judges appointed by US president Trump opposed his iberiberism as regards his abuse of judicial process in the recent elections yet none of them have been sacked.Nigeria tends to copy the US system of govt yet cant deepened our democratic processes.Too bad!

shocked.

I don't believe this.

If truly this is true,then,one can proudly say Nigeria isn't a democratic state per say in a country where development thrives, nobody is seen or believed to be above the law... Threatening a law maker for that matter is appalling,which means if it were a common man, probably his head would have been cut off by now

This may leave someone wondering,how is Nigeria practicing the rule of law we were taught back then in secondary school?

PMB has many questions to answer Nigerians,
The PDP as an opposition has failed Nigerians,
the guerrilla tactics used by PDP will only fuel more hatred in the country, PDP needs to face its responsibility more before Sowore hijack their constitutional duty.

The name calling between APC & PDP will not take Nigeria to the promised Land.
Long live Nigeria.

His colleagues just sold him out without thinking twice, see the problem of Nigeria is not the presidency but the legislative arm of government, set of crooks that should help in check and balancing thus improving governance are shying away from it . Forget restructuring it will never happen , with the set of Reps we have in the upper and lower chambers no hope for us in this country.

Nigeria right now is living in fear!
A wise man once said... "a wicked illiterate in power, is more devilish than the devil"

The bravest we have ever been was the recent #EndSARS protest that we all hoped would metamorphos to something bigger... sadly the innate fear of Nigerians didn't make it happen.

We are simply just the most fearful people on earth... but what hides these our own fear is something I call "One kind Pride Like That".

Why are we proudly Nigerians?
... Honestly there is no sparogative reason!
... yet, we would raise up our heads and shoulders, and pose when proud citizens of other nations are taking group selfie!


You would be living in deceit if you think these representatives, who all have skeletal silhouettes in their cupboards would ever consider impeaching Buhari.

... Those ones are always afraid!
