How Ahmad Lawan averted impeachment move against President Buhari

The Senators on Tuesday put the President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan, in tight corner, following his refusal to allow open discussion on the recurring cases of insecurity with massive kidnapping, killings and wanton destruction of property by terrorists across the country.

At the commencement of plenary, senators questioned why the issue of insecurity was not in the Order Paper.

With the President of the Senate not ready to recognise any point of order on the matter, senators became furious and told Lawan that no issue would be tabled for discussion at the hallowed chamber outside insecurity.

Senators were not happy when they resumed plenary over the silence on terrorists threat to go after President Muhammadu Buhari, Kaduna State governor, Malam Nasir el-Rufai, and senators.

With pressure mounted on Lawan that the matter must be discussed, he became restless as he was said to have asked the senators to put aside sentiments in order not to overheat the polity.

The senators raised the alarm with the death of a captain and two soldiers, killed by terrorists on Sunday night in Bwari area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), closure of Federal Government Colleges, attack on the convoy of President Buhari, and attack on Kuje Prison, among other atrocities, by the terrorists across the country.

Recall that terrorists who attacked and abducted train passengers on transit from Abuja to Kaduna on March 28, 2022, had in their latest video that had gone viral, identified President Buhari, El-Rufai and senators as their next targets.

The same video showed the terrorists flogging the captives in their den.

Surprisingly, senators directly on the death list of the terrorists did not deem it necessary to mention or deliberate on the issue, even behind closed doors in an executive session.
