Effect Of Buhari’s Impeachment On Insecurity – APC Senator, Yusuf
Written by Ogbodo Emmanuel on May 13, 2021
Senator Yusuf Abubakar Yusuf has shut down calls for the impeachment/removal of President Muhammadu Buhari over the rising Insecurity in the country.
Yusuf(Taraba, APC) believes that the removal of President Buhari will not change or quell the rising insecurity in the country. Speaking to newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday, he said;
“Some people are saying break up the country, some say change the leadership, impeach Mr President. How will that help the situation?”
“If you impeach the president, who takes over? Is it not the vice president? Is it not the same government? Or you remove the president and his vice, and the senate president takes over? Is it not the same government? We must think out of the box and part of that is to see it as our own responsibility to solve the insecurity problem in this country,” he said.
“In my own opinion, President Buhari is doing the best that he could. We must also synergise with him. We must give him the kind of assistance that will help solve our problem. Intelligence should be shared so that we can have communal protection. People are not doing enough to help the government to do what it ought to do.”
“President Buhari alone cannot solve this problem until the people stand up together and work with him, then we solve this problem,” he added.
President Buhari has been facing severe criticism from Nigerians over his handling of the nation’s insecurity challenges.
