A bill that will allow for the president of the federal republic of Nigeria to be impeached without a cabinet has just been passed on to it’s second hearing.
I mean, who would have thought that a bill that doesn’t really benefit the president of the country would go this far?
According to Section 19(1) of the proposed bill, upon assumption of office, the president will nominate ministers within 30 days from the day he took the oath of office.
The Section 19(2) of the bill also states that all boards of government agencies and parastatal that are due for constitution and appointment must be appointed within two months from the date of the president’s assumption of office.
While the Section 19(3) states that the president, if found guilty of a misconduct as provided under section 143 (2) (b) of the Constitution or of gross misconduct in the performance of the functions of his office or he fails to comply with the provisions of the proposed bill, he(the president) can be impeached.
