President Muhammadu Buhari has been given a six-week ultimatum to resolve the insecurity crisis in the nation by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senators.

The ultimatum was given on Wednesday after the Senators staged a walkout from Chambers while protesting the worsening security situation in the country.

Speaking at a press briefing after the walkout, minority leader Senator Philip Aduda disclosed that they had given the president six weeks to deal with the incessant terrorist attacks or face impeachment.

It was also disclosed that the impeachment was brought up during a two-hour closed-door but the Senate President did not give room for the matter to be tabled at the plenary.

The Senate has recommended various measures and discovered that even Abuja is no longer safe.

“We agreed in the closed session that we will give President Muhammadu Buhari an ultimatum, but the Senate President Dr Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan didn’t want us to raise the issue.

“However, we have issued six weeks for President Buhari to resolve insecurity or be impeached. We walked out of Chambers in protest”, Aduda said.
