“The governor described the decision of both the senate and the house of representatives to impeach the President as ‘patriotic’ and particularly commended some members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, who have opted to do the ‘right thing’.

“According to Governor Ortom, President Buhari has performed far below the expectations of Nigerians in solving both the security and economic challenges of the country, and so needs to give way for a more competent person,” the statement reads.

On his part, Aduda said the delegation considered it appropriate to inform Ortom of their decision regarding the impeachment threat against Buhari.
