In response to the given ultimatum, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has disclosed that President Buhari and the government was doing everything in its power to see an end to the insecurity in the country. This was shared after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the State House.

His statement read, “Resolution passed by Senators, as rightly said, it was passed when we were deliberating, but we thank them for their patriotism and their concern, but we are working round the clock, 24 hours, to ensure that the situation is brought under control.

“I want to assure you that the president is aware of all these and as a matter of fact, I think tomorrow, there’s going to be another Security Council meeting. So, it’s not a matter the president is taking lightly and like I’ll always say, some of the measures we’re going to take are not measures that you can discuss openly here, but we’re as concerned as you are, we’re not going to abandon our responsibility.”

The move to impeach the President was unanimously agreed upon by the senators from the various political parties across the country.
