National Assembly under pressure to evoke constitution to impeach Buhari

If suggestions made by the Indigenous People
of Biafra (IPOB) to the National Assembly are
to be strictly followed, President
Muhammadu Buhari may soon be booted out
of office.
The group, according to a press statement
issued by their spokespersons Emman Nmezu
and Clifford Iroanya, Nigeria’s disintegration
into three different nations is almost as good
as confirmed but if President Buhari is not
removed from power before this happens,
there might be violence in the country.

Avengers condemn President Buhari
The group believes that the president has
violated their human rights and has breached
the constitution before and after taking his
oath of office in 2015.
“Recall that on the 29th of May 2015, Buhari
took Oath of Allegiance and Oath of Office of
President which includes non-interference in
the discharge of the duties of other arms
government. However, he told the world
during his Media Chat of December 30, 2015,
that Nnamdi Kanu and Sambo Dasuki will
never be released and this was after the
courts have ordered their unconditional
“Buhari’s comment was not only a violation
of the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution
but it is also in violation of Part-I Section-9
of the Fifth Schedule of the Constitution
which states that ‘A public officer shall not
do or direct to be done, in abuse of his office,
any arbitrary act prejudicial to the rights of
any other person knowing that such act is
unlawful or contrary to any government
policy,” the statement read in part.

The pro-Biafran group insists that President
Buhari has to be removed so that Nigeria will
experience temporary stability before the
secession into three nations of Biafra, Arewa,
and Oduduwa.
“We, therefore, call on the National Assembly
to immediately activate Section-143 of the
Constitution of Nigeria to avoid further
casualties. The removal of President Buhari
using Section-143 of the Constitution will
ensure a temporary stability for Nigeria as
the country prepares for its dissolution into
the founding nations of Biafra, Arewa, and
“Without the removal of Buhari, according to
Section-143 of the Constitution, the
unstoppable and irreversible disintegration of
Nigeria into the nations above may take a
violent and calamitous path which will end up
hurting internal and external stakeholders in
Nigeria including the economic interests of
foreign governments,” the statement further
Meanwhile, the group has appreciated a
southern group for calling for the immediate
release of Nnamdi Kanu from prison custody.
The IPOB in a statement on Thursday,
October 20, said the Southern Nigeria
Peoples Assembly demonstrated some level
of courage in their recent demand for the
release of Nnamdi Kanu.
“We praise them for the truth, the fathers and
elderly statesmen who knows the real
foundation of this contraption called Nigeria
were calling for the release of Nnamdi Kanu
and others who committed no crime against
the government of Nigeria,” IPOB said in a
statement signed by Powerful Emma.
“This proves that we still have fearless
people and men of honour in the society,”
Emma said.
