Missing Budget: Impeach Buhari Pdp Demands



SAN FRANCISCO, January 14, (THEWILL) – The Peoples Democratic Party, has asked the National Assembly to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari, over the budget scandal rocking the National Assembly.
The party also demanded the resignation of Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, Minister of Budget and National Planning, Udo Udoma, and the Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele.
The PDP, in a statement signed by its acting national chairman, Uche Secondus, revealed that the decision was reached by its National Working Committee.

According to Secondus, the party “rose from a meeting Thursday charging the National Assembly to commence impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari for the various constitutional breaches especially the submission of two version of the 2006 budget”.

The Senate on Thursday said Mr Ita Enang, a former senator and now Mr. Buhari's assistant on National Assembly, had changed the contents of the original budget document as presented by Mr. Buhari.

The party called on the National Assembly to thoroughly investigate the 'shameful' act and ensure that appropriate sanctions is meted to whoever has a hand in the dubious action.

“We sympathize with Nigerians who are seriously undergoing terrible hardship because of the now obvious inept leadership of APC despite the promise of one Naira to a dollar.

“What hope can a government that allows its currency to break a 43 year old record crashing to over N300 to one dollar offer and yet does not show it has clear focus of what to do,” the party said as it called foe Emefiele's resignation.

“The APC government rather than address very grievous national issues created by its lack of capacity to govern has instead resorted to violation of peoples rights in the name of fighting corruption,” it said.
