No need for ultimatum, impeach Buhari now – HURIWA to NASS




Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, (HURIWA) has told the National Assembly to proceed with the process of impeaching President Muhammadu Buhari without further delay.


HURIWA wants the lawmakers to fast-track the process and see the President impeached within a short limit of time, because, according to the group, a failure for seven years cannot perform any miracle within the six-week ultimatum.


HURIWA wondered why the Tucano fighter jets procured from the US have not been put to use by the military despite audacious attacks by terrorists across Nigeria.


The group said it might be that the present administration is sparing bandits and insurgents because of their ethnic and religious affinity, noting that the bandits, who had since been designated as terrorists by a Federal High Court, are hellbent on destabilizing the country.


The human rights group said that instead of launching an unprecedented offensive against the bandits, the Defence Headquarters is busy making claims of 30 terrorists being killed in Bwari Local Area Council without providing any form of evidence.


It stated further, “We’re asking why the government has not deployed the 12 Super Tucano fighter jets procured from the United States to bomb terrorists hibernating in Kaduna, Niger and now besieging Abuja from Suleja and Abuja-Lokoja angles?


“HURIWA is forced to ask the President if his government is colluding with the terrorists and Fulani bandits, because it is befuddling that a government will fold its arms and watch as non-state actors go on the rampage, killing citizens like chickens.


“Before now, it was in the North-East, but gradually, the terrorists conquered the North-West with daring attacks on military formations and structures. Now, the terrorists are closing in on Abuja. The chickens have finally come home to roost!


“…A government that has spent seven years pampering terrorists cannot effect any tangible and swift changes in the anti-terror war within six weeks.”


HURIWA demanded that the impeachment of President Buhari be fast-tracked, pointing to the fact that “terrorists are now surrounding the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.”
