Nigerian opposition lawmakers stormed out of the Senate plenary angrily, chanting “Buhari must go and Lawan should follow” in protest against the worsening insecurity across the country.
The Senators gave President Muhammadu Buhari six weeks to address the rising insecurity in the country or face impeachment.
Senate Minority Leader, Philip Aduda, stated this while addressing pressmen after the opposition lawmakers stormed out of the Senate plenary.
The Senate Minority Leader raised a point of order for deliberation at the Red Chamber, on issues raised at the closed-door session, which lasted for two hours.
The Senate President Ahmad Lawan had, after the executive session, announced that issues relating to workings of the Senate and unity of Nigeria were discussed and asked the Senate leaders to proceed with the items listed on the Order Paper.
Aduda however, raised a point of order to call for deliberation on issues discussed at the closed session, but Lawan ruled him out of order.
Angered by the ruling, the opposition Senators stormed out of the plenary, chanting songs, calling for President Buhari’s resignation.
