The National Assembly has called for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari for not seeking permission before withdrawing and spending $496million used for the purchase of aircraft from the United States.
Moving a motion on the issue on Thursday, Senator Matthew Uroghide, Edo State, said President Buhari’s move was a violation of the constitution and thus, he should face the consequences.
He prayed the Senate to invoke Section 143 to start the impeachment process of the president.
Section 143 of the Nigerian constitution provides for the removal of the president from office.
However, President Buhari had said he gave approval for the withdrawal of the fund because he believed the National Assembly would have no objection to his action.
