Breaking: Senate begins Impeachment proceedings against President Buhari

By on April 26, 2018

The Nigerian Senate has began proceedings to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari .

The senate fell short of activating Section 143 of the 1999 Nigerian Constitution, as amended, which sets in motion the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.

This was during plenary on thursday.

This was in reaction to the alleged violation of Section 80 of the 1999 Nigerian Constitution, as amended by Buhari, wherein he withdrew $496 million from the Excess Crude Account to purchase military jets without any approval by the National Assembly.

The motion of impeachment was moved by Senator Matthew Urhoghide and seconded by Senator Chukwuka Utazi.

The matter has been referred to the Senate committee on Judiciary for further legislative advice. The committee is expected to report back next Wednesday.
