However, later the people who were accused of plotting against the president denied the reports.

Nigeria, like most democratic societies, has one of such mechanisms and this is known as “Impeachment or removal”.

According to the Nigerian Constitution, the president or vice president may be removed from office in accordance with the provisions of 143 section, chapter six, part one:

“Whenever a notice of any allegation in writing signed by not less than one-third of the members of the National Assembly:-

“(a) is presented to the President of the Senate;

“(b) stating that the holder of the office of President or Vice-President is guilty of gross misconduct in the performance of the functions of his office, detailed particulars of which shall be specified,

“the President of the Senate shall within seven days of the receipt of the notice cause a copy thereof to be served on the holder of the office and on each member of the National Assembly, and shall also cause any statement made in reply to the allegation by the holder of the office to be served on each member of the National Assembly.”

Below are six reasons why the senators may be forced to gang up and teach the president a major lesson ”this is democracy not military rule:
