Following the impeachment of US President Donald Trump, some Nigerians have taken to Twitter to demand the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari
Their grievances against the Nigerian president, according to them are; disobedience to court orders and undermining the country’s constitution.
However, some supporters of the Buhari-led government have said it is impossible to impeach the President, considering the fact that his party, the All Progressives Congress(APC) constitute the majority at the national assembly.
There's something with politics and numbers. You can't get 10 people to protest and miraculously remove someone with 15m strong supporters. Also, you will need 73 Senators and 240 Reps to #ImpeachBuhari. If you don't have the numbers, you will just cry like malnourished children!

Meanwhile, some other Nigerians have opined that it would be impossible for a senate, which they described as ‘rubber stamp’, to carry out any impeachment against President Buhari.
This hashtag #impeachbuhari is funny
1. House of Reps? No balls
2. Senate? Rubber-stamp
3. If somehow he gets impeached, how will he leave? DSS are at their most evil state yet
4. some Muslims will claim it is a religious witch-hunt
5. Arewa will say the South are behind it

Buhari must go. We don't want a tyrant as our president. We can make this a reality. All we need to do is occupy the streets in hundreds of thousands all over the country. No man is greater than the country. Buhari can't be flexing muscles like that. He's no God.#impeachbuhari

The act of disobedience to court orders and undermining the constitution in which you took an oath of office with is an impeachable offence. The impeachment of @MBuhari should have commenced long ago.#ImpeachBuhari

Disobedience to court orders is the highest abuse of power. If we #ImpeachBuhari for this, it’s simply bringing sanity to our democratic space.
