Kingsley Chinda, the PDP lawmaker representing Obio/Akpor Federal Constituency in Rivers State, who called for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari is set to be disciplined by the House of Representative members.
Chinda is the leader of the Peoples Democratic Party, House of Reps Caucus, is said not to be representing the position of the PDP as he claimed when he made that call for President’s impeachment, according to the House Majority Leader, Ado Doguwa, during plenary on Monday, Chinda acted alone.
Doguwa attributed the President’s decision not to honour the House to the utterances of the lawmaker calling for his impeachment, and that the concerns that the President would be embarrassed If he honoured the invitation made him decided against it.
Recall that Chinda, in a press release on December 7, asked Nigerians irrespective of political party, tribe, or religion to compel their representatives to commence impeachment process against the President.
It was believed that the lawmaker’s call for impeachment was due to the rising cases of insecurity being witnessed across the country.
But, Benjamin Kalu, the House spokesman described Chinda’s call for impeachment as the “opinion of a single member of the opposition party in the house.”
He noted that the President is yet to appear before the House and give explanations on what his government is doing to address the insecurity in the country and that made Chinda’s call illogical.
“If this call came past president’s visit for the failure to dialogue well enough in securing solutions or due to his inability to put our positions to use, it would appear logical.
“Unfortunately, this call is not only illogical, but it also appears as a tool mischievously thrown up to disrupt the agenda of the coming visit with all it sets out to achieve in the spirit of nation-building which remains the mantra of the 9th Assembly and is considered a joint task,” Kalu added.
