A Caucus leader of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the House of Representatives, Kingsley Chinda, on Wednesday said he and others were sensitizing their colleagues in the National Assembly to initiate an impeachment process against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Chinda insisted that he would not apologise to anyone for calling for Buhari’s removal.
He said they were also talking to Nigerians to mount pressure on their representatives in the National Assembly to begin the process.
Chinda, who is representing Obio-/Akpor Federal Constituency in in the National Assembly, spoke on Nigeria Info, 92.3FM in Port Harcourt.
He said the Leader of the House, Alhassan Ado Doguwa, was wrong to have threatened him with punishment for calling for his position on Buhari adding that the comments from Doguwa ridiculed the House.
He said: “I owe nobody any apology for calling for impeachment of Mr. President. The leader of the House said that I am speaking for myself and not for the PDP caucus.
“I don’t know who he (Doguwa) is in touch with. The PDP has also come out to say that is the position of the party, and as spokesperson of PDP in the House, is to tow the position of PDP in the House. Why would the majority leader who is very experienced in parliamentary issues be dancing naked in the public?
Hon. Chinda also said the party was sensitizing House members as well as Nigerians to move for the impeachment of the President.
“We are talking with our colleagues. We are also talking to Nigerians and we are asking Nigerians to talk to their representatives. It is not what you want. If the people that the House leader represents in Kano come together and tell him (Doguwa) we want you to sign this impeachment notice, we are in support, he has no right to do otherwise.
