APC chiefs disagree on Buhari’s removal, recall Obasanjo’s presidency 


Senator Adeseye Ogunlewe, said ethnic and religious sentiments are bound to hinder plans to remove President Muhammadu Buhari from office, recalling the Olusegun Obasanjo presidency in 2002.

While speaking on Arise Television on Thursday, Sen.Ogunlewe, who is an All Progressives Congress (APC), chieftain in Lagos State. React to what another APC chieftain, Adegoke SAN who said that Buhari’s government has grossly failed in its basic responsibility of protecting lives and property in Nigeria.

However Sen. Ogunlewe condemned members of the National Assembly for the rising insecurity, but Adegoke on his part still condemn Buhari, saying that he could not leave the head to blame the neck for not thinking.

Ogunlewe pointed out the challenges involved in removing a president, he said the presiding officer, that is the Senate President or the Speaker would be pivotal to such a decision.

“The role and conviction of the presiding officer, the Senate President is very important. If he is not convinced that the process should go ahead, it is dead on arrival. So, he is the presiding officer and there is hardly anything anyone can do in the voice of the presiding officer.

“When it comes to impeachment and northern interest, it is a different kettle of fish entirely. They (the northern caucus) would hold meetings at night and override you because they have the majority. So they should make the noise but my view is that it is just impossible.”.

Noting the ethnic factors that played out in the 2002 impeachment threat raised against Obasanjo in the Senate in 2000 and then more seriously in the House of Representatives, in September 2002.
