The VP As Coordinator Is An Impeachable Offense

By Abiola Benjamin Obayomi       May 10, 2017



The VP As Coordinator Is An Impeachable Offense
President Muhammadu Buhari appointing the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo as Coordinator of Nations Affairs in his last letter has committed an impeachable offense. The latest letter- though looks mild at the surface; has some grave implications. Human right lawyer Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa has called on the national assembly to begin the impeachment proceedings of President Buhari for gross misconduct. Below are some of the important issues that he raised concerning the letter:

A coordinator is a Person of equal status with others. So the VP cannot make appointments or sack anybody while the President is away. He cannot discipline any erring minister. He is limited in policy decisions, as a coordinator. He has no power of control over the "Cabal" to whom the president has handed over power, albeit illegally. The Chief of Staff was recently reported to have moved vital documents away from Aso Villa. In effect, Nigeria has no leader presently. The existing office of VP is no more. The constitutionally created office of Acting President has been circumscribed by the President.

The President is away on an indefinite medical trip abroad. The Senate lacks the power to pronounce Osinbajo as Acting President, without a WRITTEN RESOLUTION of BOTH CHAMBERS of the National Assembly, through a DECISION taken on the FLOOR of both chambers. The President cannot travel for medical checkup for an indefinite period of time. The National Assembly should reject the letter from the President. There is therefore a serious constitutional crisis.

Pro-government lawyers and activists, who have goaded the Buhari administration into dubious and reckless interpretations of the Constitution in the past, should be held responsible for the current crisis and all acts of impunity from Aso Villa. In all, the National Assembly should commence impeachment proceedings against the President for gross misconduct.
