Chief Ralph Nwosu, the National Chairman of African Democratic Congress (ADC),has called on the National Assembly to declare Senate President, Bukola Saraki president of Nigeria.
He said this should be done with immediate effect.
Nwosu made the call in a statement signed and issued, yesterday, by Yemi Kolapo, ADC National Publicity Secretary.
He said the action was necessary considering recent happenings, especially the alleged ridiculing of the constitution by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said the President’s actions indicated that “he could no long continue to rule the nation.”
He said blunders against Nigeria’s fledgling democracy indicated that “the president and his vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, were no longer capable of staying in office.”
According to him, “the Presidency had no right to remove or suspend the head of the Judiciary arm of government without due process.”
He added that “the president has committed a grave offence against the nation.”
Nwosu also pointed out that it would be less reckless for the legislature to take over power from this government without necessarily going through any impeachment procedure.
“The National Assembly should declare the Senate president, Dr. Bukola Saraki, president,” Nwosu said
