The motion was moved by the senator representing Edo, Matthew Uroghide on Thursday. He stated that the President’s move was a violation of the constitution and so, he should face the consequences.
He, therefore, prayed that the Senate invoke Section 143 which allows for the impeachment process of the president, to be allowed.
The motion was seconded and supported by Chukwuka Utazi.
According to reports gathered by NIGERIA NEWS, Mr Utazi was clearly angry and stated that, “This is an impeachable offence.”
However, deliberations are still ongoing by other senators as at the time of filing this report.
