It described the threat by the lawmakers to impeach Buhari as empty.

The group said it would not hesitate to begin recall process against any Edo lawmaker that sign any impeachment notice meant for Buhari.

National Coordinator of the group, Mr. Fred Okunmahie, told newsmen in Benin City that the lawmakers are only protecting their interest and not concern about the country.

Okunmahie said it was high time APC lawmakers used their majority to silence opposition PDP who wants power back through the back door.

He said the conditions given by the lawmakers to Buhari were laughable to ordinary Nigerians.

According to him, “How do they expect Buhari to stop harassment and humiliation of lawmakers that broke the law or accused breaking the law?

“There is no proof by them that the anti-corruption war is selective since all those being prosecuted served in past administration.

“We see it as an empty threat. The National Assembly members want to push their own interests. They want to push their way because of next year’s general election. We know the presidency will not be moved by the threat.”



  1. War is seriously roaming in Nigeria, but God forbid. Our law makers had better sit up and stop being unnecessarily selfish.
