A House of Representatives member Muhammadu Kazaure (Jigawa-APC) has disassociated himself from an alleged National Assembly plan to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.
A joint executive session of both chambers earlier on Tuesday passed a 12-point condition for the president to address urgently or face the invocation of the powers of the legislature.
“Nobody will impeach the president as far as we are alive in this House because that day, it will be a war day,” he said.
He said that there were senators and members of the House who would not support such move.
The lawmaker urged Buhari to intervene in the matter in the interest of the country and the All Progressive Congress (APC).
”I am sure the president will take serious action and the whole thing will stop,” he added.
”You are aware that in 2015, we didn’t have money, we didn’t have power and we never intimidated anybody.
”God gave us this power; so, there is no need for this government to intimidate anybody because of re-election matter or any other reason.
”By now, we should try and be good to people; this is what we should concentrate on.”
He said that with the increase in oil price, the focus of government now should be on how to give Nigerians better welfare package.
