A coalition of 42 civil society organizations, on Monday, called on President Muhamadu Buhari to tackle insecurity or risk impeachment.

The CSOs warned that they would prevail on the National Assembly to trigger the impeachment process if Buhari failed to act.

The coalition includes BudgiT Foundation Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth & Advancement (YIAGA), Centre for Democracy and Development (CDD) and others.

Mr Jaiye Gaskia, of United Action for Democracy, UAD while delivering the brief on behalf of the CSOs, condemned the reports of alleged payment of ransom to bandits in exchange for the release of kidnapped Nigerians.

“Where the President fails to fulfil his constitutional duties as stated above, we demand he step aside or the National Assembly initiates impeachment proceedings against him on grounds of gross misconduct as provided for in Section 143 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” the statement reads in part.
