A lawmaker representing Obio-/Akpor Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives has disclosed that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has started lobbying Federal Lawmakers to impeach Buhari, Chinda who said this on a programme on Nigeria Info 92.3FM in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Wednesday disclosed that he would not apologise for earlier calling for the President’s impeachment, adding that based on the worsening security situation in the country, Buhari should be impeached.
