Catholic Priest and spiritual director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu Nigeria (AMEN), Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka has called for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari over the rising insecurity in the country.
Mbaka stated that it was sad how Buhari could maintain grave silence in the midst of the killings and deaths in the country, insisting that he may have lost touch with realities.
Speaking during worship on Wednesday evening in Enugu, he told his congregation that no civilised leader would remain in power with the spate of violence and ugly deaths that have bedeviled the nation.
“How can people be dying, the chief security officer of the country will be sitting down without making any comment,” Mbaka said.
“Gunmen attacking people everywhere. Buhari should have resigned honorably following his failure as a leader. Let me tell you if it is in a civilised country, by now, President Buhari will resign with what is happening. So it is amazing that he has chosen to sit tight while people are dying anyhow.”
Mbaka called on the National Assembly to swing into action and remove the president, should he fail to resign, saying that Nigerians are faced with great difficulty created by poverty and insecurity.
“Nigerians are crying because there’s no security in the country. The National Assembly should impeach the president if he doesn’t want to resign,” Mbaka said.
Mbaka warned the lawmakers that should they fail to impeach the president and begin to attack him; “…something worse than what they can never imagine will happen to the members.”Mbaka emphasized that the nation cannot continue the way it is, warning that “enough has to be enough. There is time for everything” (Guardian)
