Buhari warns of looming anarchy over impeachment of APC governors

Former Military Head of State and leader of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari ( rtd) has warned that the unconstitutional impeachment of governors will plunge the country into anarchy.

Buhari in a statement on Monday in Kaduna maintained that the Nigerian Constitution was being subverted in the desperate quest to impeach governors in the opposition party.

According to him, "the recent induced impeachment and threats of impeachment of Governors in the opposition" was aimed at decapitating the APC , stressing that it does not augur well for the survival of a fragile nation like Nigeria and its tenderfoot democracy.

He stated that deploying the institutions of state, some of which are symbols of the country's unity, "just to kick an out-of-favour state Governor in the stomach can only breed anarchy and lead the nation down the slippery slope to chaos."

Buhari declared that "the dangerous clouds are beginning to gather and the vultures are circling, and these have manifested in Nasarawa where the ordinary people have defied guns and tanks to protest the plan to impeach Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura in a repeat of the bitter medicine forced down the throat of Governor Murtala Nyako".
