Court grants us leave of Mandamus compelling NASS to impeach Buhari - Osun Lawyer

A Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo has ordered the National Assembly to commence impeachment proceeding against President Buhari.

According to Punch, the order was issued by Justice Maureen Onyetenu on Wednesday, July 4, 2018.

The Chairman of the Ilesa branch of the Nigeria Bar Association, Kanmi Ajibola; and a human rights activist, Mr. Suleiman Adeniyi had earlier approached the court seeking the order to compel the National Assembly to begin the process

They argued that the President should be impeached for spending without the National Assembly’s approval

You will recall that in April 2018, the Senate faulted President Buhari’s decision to  withdraw  $496 million from the Excess Crude Account (ECA) to purchase military aircraft without the National Assembly approval.

Speaking on the issue at plenary, Senate President Bukola Saraki accused the President of breaking the law.

You also recall that there was also a call for Buhari’s impeachment on the floor of the lower chambers.
