Orji Uzor Kalu, chief whip of the senate, says there is no talk about the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari because security has improved.
On July 27, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senators staged a walkout after Senate President Ahmad Lawan prevented Philip Aduda, senator representing federal capital territory (FCT), from discussing the rising insecurity and an ultimatum to Buhari after a closed session.
A majority of senators reportedly agreed that Buhari be given six weeks to fix security or face impeachment proceedings.
Speaking with journalists on Tuesday in Abuja, the former governor of Abia said the All Progressives Congress (APC) senators have the numbers to resist the impeachment move.
“The issue of impeachment is a non-existing issue,” the senator said.
“Nobody is talking about it. Even if they try, they will fail because we have the number to resist it.
“There is nothing wrong with a lawmaker coming up with an impeachment threat but will they succeed? No! So, as far as I am concerned, there is no discussion about Buhari’s impeachment because security has improved.
“We have been meeting with the service chiefs and some of you were there and can testify that the issue of security has improved and it will keep improving.”
