Buhari
Ayo Adebanjo

Afenifere chieftain and elder statesman Ayo Adebanjo has urged members of the National Assembly to drop plans of impeaching President Muhammadu Buhari.

The National Assembly had on Tuesday reaffirmed Senate’s vote of no confidence on the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

Lawmakers also threatened to invoke its constitutional powers against Buhari.

Speaking to Independent, Adebanjo said an impeachment move against Buhari will cause unnecessary tension in the country.

He advised that Nigerians should rather wait and vote Buhari out in 2019.

Adebanjo said: “We should allow him go peacefully in 2019. We have just little time between now and the next election. Trying to impeach him now is not ideal.

“All everybody should do now is to ensure that we have a credible election and allow him go peacefully.”
