Chief Ayo Adebanjo, elder statesman and Afenifere chieftain, has advised members of the National Assembly against impeaching President Muhammadu Buhari.
The National Assembly had at an emergency joint session yesterday reaffirmed Senate’s vote of no confidence on the IGP.
It also threatened to invoke its constitutional powers against Buhari over the “systematic harassment and humiliation by the Executive of perceived political opponents” by the police.
Reacting to the threat, Adebanjo told Independent that an impeachment move against the president will cause unnecessary tension in the country.
He advised that Nigerians should rather wait and vote Buhari out in 2019.
“We should allow him go peacefully in 2019. We have just little time between now and the next election. Trying to impeach him now is not ideal.
“All everybody should do now is to ensure that we have a credible election and allow him go peacefully,” Adebanjo said.
