Abuja - The National Working Committee of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) has charged the National Assembly to commence the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari for alleged constitutional breaches.
This follows the reported submission of two versions of the 2006 budget to the legislature.
PDP Acting National a Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, said the National Assembly should thoroughly investigate the "shameful act" and mete "appropriate sanction."
The main opposition party also asked the Ministers of Finance, Budget and National Planning to resign having allegedly failed to provide the much needed capacity in the management of the nation's economy.
This, Secondus said, had resulted in the crashing of the nation's currency to as low as N305 to a dollar.

The party asked the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria to resign for plunging the country's currency policy.
“We sympathizes with Nigerians who are seriously undergoing terrible hardship because of the now obvious inept leadership of APC despite the promise of one Naira to a dollar," said Secondus.
"What hope can a government that allows its currency to break a 43 year old record crashing to over N300 to one dollar offer and yet does not show it has clear focus of what to do?"
Secondus added APC-led government rather than address these national issues created by its alleged lack of capacity to govern had instead resorted to violation of people's rights in the name of fighting corruption.
He noted in particular the continued detention of its spokesperson, Olisa Metuh for alleged corruption.
