Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Tuesday congratulated the lawmakers who defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
No fewer than 15 senators of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Tuesday, defected to the PDP.
The defectors cited crisis and faction within the party as the reasons for their defection, saying they cannot continue to pursue their political careers under the ruling party.
Similarly, a total of 37 members of the House of Representatives announced their official defection from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Reacting to the development, Fani-Kayode, on Twitter, called for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said it was time to impeach Buhari and send him back to Daura.
He wrote, ”I congratulate the entire nation and particularly the leadership of the Senate and @bukolasaraki on successfully thwarting a coup d’etat against our hard-earned democracy today by preventing @MBuhari and his forces of darkness from taking over the National Assembly.
”I welcome those that courageously decamped from the imploding APC and joined the ranks of the @OfficialPDPNig. We now have a PDP majority in the Senate and I urge the House of Reps to do same. It is time to impeach the monster @Buhari and send him back to Daura!
”Both @MBuhari and APC are finished.They will soon be out of power. ICC get ready to prosecute and jail the greatest war criminal and genocidal maniac in the history of Nigeria.The time for the tyrant to pay the price for his tyranny, cruelty and wickedness is almost here.”
