No evidence of impeachable offence against Buhari – Reps’ Chief Whip
Written by Morenike Adebayo on July 18, 2016
The Chief Whip of the House of Representatives has said that the House has no single evidence of impeachable offence against President Muhammadu Buhari. Fielding questions from newsmen in Bauchi, Alhaji Alhassan Doguwa, also said no such issue was contemplated in the House of Representatives.
The Peoples Democratic Party Caucus at the House of Representatives on Sunday also cautioned against initiating any impeachment proceedings to impeach the President despite the festering crisis between the Executive and the Senate. The Leader of the caucus, Mr. Leo Ogor, who said this in Abuja, explained that an impeachment process would be difficult to reverse. He noted that in parliamentary practice, impeachment was used as a last resort after all other avenues for dialogue must have been exhausted.
