A Justice at the Federal High Court, Maureen Onyetenu has on Wednesday granted an order of mandamus ordering the National Assembly to commence the impeachment of the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari based on several alleged constitutional breaches.
This is following a motion filed by the Chairman of the Nigeria Bar Association, Ilesa branch, Mr Kanmi Ajibola and a human rights activist Mr Suleiman Adeniyi’s letter to the Senate and the House of Representative three months ago to begin the impeachment of the President over the incessant killings in Nigeria and spending without approval.
After the National Assembly refused to honour the letter, the duo approached the court seeking an order to compel the legislators to commence the process.
The duo also alleged that Buhari should also be impeached on the ground of his inability to produce his primary school certificate which they described as an impeachable offence.
Justice Maureen in her ruling granted the leave to compel the National Assembly to commence the impeachment against the President.
