Soyinka, Falana support move to impeach Buhari

Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, and human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, have supported the call by PDP senators for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The duo spoke at an interactive session on Tuesday organized to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Abeokuta Club.

The PDP senators, who were joined by some of their APC colleagues, as well as their counterparts in the House of Representatives, had issued a six-week ultimatum to the president to find a solution to the insecurity plaguing the country or be impeached.

The opposition party’s lawmakers had staged a walk-out from the senate chamber last week, after Ahmad Lawan, the Senate President, blocked moves to table the impeachment during plenary.

The lawmaker who represents Adamawa North Senatorial District said the president had failed in his primary duty of securing the nation and its people.

Adamu Bulkachuwa, another APC senator representing Bauchi North, also backed the impeachment plan citing the worsening insecurity in the country.

Tuesday’s interactive session was moderated by Prof Soyinka, a professor of Comparative Literature.

The panellists, comprising Mr Falana; Registrar of the Joint Administration and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Is-haq Oloyede; a lawyer and Chartered Accountant, Gbenga Adeoye; Ogoooluwa Bankole; and Sunday Oduntan discussed the topic ‘Good governance or misgovernance: The contract called democracy’.

Prof. Soyinka noted that the president should be impeached because he had breached the contract of democracy.

Prof Soyinka argued that the president had also insisted on choosing his successor, a path which he described as breaching contract democracy.
