Oyogist.com has learned that Popular human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), has urged thrthe National Assembly to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari, saying the president has outlived his usefulness.

Falana, who spoke on the sidelines of an event to mark World Press Freedom Day, said Nigeria is at war, as the current administration can no longer perform its function of securing lives and properties.

He said, “Our country is going through war. In the North-East the Boko Haram sect is having an upper hand, don’t be deceived. “I’m sure you know what is going on in the South-East, no policeman or soldier can wear his uniform- it’s as bad. I’m sure you know what is going on in the South-West, kidnapping, ritual murders all over the place. So, nowhere is safe in our country,” he said.

“A few weeks ago, it was gathered that Boko Haram militants had taken over communities in the Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State, imposing VAT and income taxes on residents. The state governor, Sani Bello, also announced the displacement of many residents by insurgents around Munya and Shiroro local government areas, stating that over 3,000 people have been displaced by Boko Haram’s activities.

Falana further cited section 143 of the constitution which provides that “The President or Vice-President may be removed from office in accordance with the provisions of this section.”

He berated the current administration saying that “a regime that has outlived its usefulness boasts that no one can suggest that the president should resign.

“For them, it’s a reasonable statement to ask the president to resign. But for me I submit by virtue of section 143 and we didn’t put it. If the president is unable to perform the primary functions of his office, the National Assembly shall move for him and ensure that he is neatly taken away out power through the process of impeachment,” he said.
