Following the indictment of the presidency in the controversy over the two versions of the 2016 budget, the National Working Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has charged the National Assembly to commence impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari for the various constitutional breaches.
In a statement signed by the acting National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, the party said the National Assembly should thoroughly investigate the shameful act, including the distortion and banding of figures to accommodate their personal interest and ensure that appropriate sanctions is meted to whoever has a hand in the dubious action that has brought embarrassment to the legislative body.
The party also asked the Ministers of Finance, Budget and National Planning to resign having failed to provide the much needed capacity in the management of the nation’s economy resulting in the embarrassing crash of the nation’s currency to as low as N305 to a dollar.
Also the party asked the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria CBN to resign for plunging the country’s currency policy into chaos an action that thrown investors into total confusion.
The party admonished the government to stop pretending that it knows what to do when feelers from the seat of power shows clearly that Nigerians by voting for APC have just discovered they boarded a once chance bus.
“We sympathise with Nigerians who are seriously undergoing terrible hardship because of the now obvious inept leadership of APC despite the promise of one Naira to a dollar.
“What hope can a government that allows its currency to break a 43-year-old record crashing to over N300 to one dollar offer and yet does not show it has clear focus of what to do.
The party said that APC government rather than address very grievous national issues created by its lack of capacity to govern has instead resorted to violation of people’s rights in the name of fighting corruption.
They noted in particular the continued detention of its Spokesperson Chief Olisa Metuh for nearly 10 days in clear breach of his fundamental human rights and reiterates its earlier call on the anti graft body to release him unconditionally with immediate effect.
The party called on all lovers of democracy especially the international community to note the fact that rule of law and respect for citizens’ rights, essential ingredients of civil liberty have taken flight in Nigeria under President Buhari’s watch.
