The Minority Caucus of the National Assembly has indicated that it is taking note and will continue to take note of the constitutional breaches that is happening at this time by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The caucus, after a closed-door emergency meeting on Tuesday, declared President Muhammadu Buhari absent from duty despite the killings and kidnappings across the country.
It said at the appropriate time, it utilize all constitutional methods and measures available after consultations with other colleagues to do the needful to safe the country from collapse.
“The caucus has also taken note of the fact that the president is absent from duty. We have not seen our president. We have not heard from our president despite the daily killings that have turned Nigeria into a killing field of unimaginable proportions.”
It condemned what it called the “ineptitude and inability” of the APC-led federal government to prevent the country from drifting apart.
It said rather than solving the security problems he met on ground as promised, the situation has grown worse under the APC to the extent that every section of the country is now beset with one security challenge or the other.
The caucus leader and Senate Minority Leader, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, who briefed newsmen after the meeting said,
“We, therefore as a caucus, suggest that immediate steps should be taken by governments at all levels to set up proper security infrastructure whether in the mode of state police and other constitutional reforms to arrest the drift of the nation,” he said.
He urged President Buhari to take charge of his government and take the country out of the current security situation.
Abaribe also urged Nigerians not lose hope in the country, but do everything possible to get rid of APC in 2023.
He said: “The caucus also expresses strong reservations about the economic strategy of the government which has culminated into what is called quantitative easing, which the ordinary man knows as printing money.
“We feel that this strategy has led us to the very high inflation that we have today, devaluation of our Naira to the height that we never expected and has also concomitantly brought out unemployment and has led the government to contemplate, as we see today, to raise the price of fuel, electricity tariff and all manners of charges on the helpless Nigerians.
“We think that the government should reverse itself and should not continue in its mindless borrowing without seeing any benefits that are coming from it.
“We also, as a caucus, want to put on notice to all Nigerians and the international community about the threats to the lives of our members, to those who come out to say things that are true about the state of Nigeria today, and this threats have come in various forms, including threat to life.
“So, we condemn this attempt at holding everybody down and trying to shut us up and make sure that nobody says because they think by doing so, problems of the country will disappear. We say that problems of the country will not disappear.
“This is a time that needs the president to come out and take charge of his government and take us all away from problems we are seeing today.”
