The National Assembly has been lauded by the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), for its joint resolution on Tuesday, June 5, to sanction President Muhammadu Buhari, Independent reports.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the group’s founder, Frederick Fasehun, said the move was a commendable step to protect Nigeria’s democracy and check it’s slide into totalitarianism. He added that it was long overdue.
Fasehun stated that going by recent developments in the country, it was clear that the president had not learnt any lessons from his first outing as a military head of state in 1984, when he was overthrown after turning against national institutions.
He said: “No one has said that the National Assembly is a gathering of infallible angels; but this executive and Buhari’s holier-than-thou posturing has no basis in reality.
“It is quite unfortunate that a president whose slogan was ‘War Against Indiscipline’ now runs a cabinet of uncontrollable, cocky and corrupt individuals who have mustered the daredevilry to dishonour the Legislature, hold the Judiciary in contempt and harangue media and civil society.”
He urged all Nigerians to massively support the National Assembly’s move.
