|How To Easily Impeach Buhari by Muurian: 8:55am On May 12|
The process for the Impeachment of a Nigerian president is contained in Section 143 of the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria as amended.
To impeach a sitting President, this is the legally accepted way of doing it according to the Constitution of the Land –
i. Notice of Gross Misconduct
The impeachment proceedings start with a notice of gross misconduct in writing to the President.
The notice is to be signed by 1/3rd of the National Assembly.
A gross misconduct means “… a grave violation or breach of the provisions of this Constitution or a misconduct of such nature as amounts in the opinion of the National Assembly to misconduct”.
ii. The notice of misconduct must be served the President within 7 days after receipt by the Senate President.
The President need not reply. But, in case he or she does, the reply must be served on every member of the National Assembly.
iii. After the notice has been served on the president, each chamber of the National Assembly must adopt through a motion, on whether or not the allegation against the president should be investigated.
The motion must scale through a 2/3rd majority in the affirmative to be passed at both Chambers.
iv. If the motion doesn’t scale through, that will be the end of the venture.
