120 Lawmakers Sign Jonathan’s Impeachment Notice

Aftermath of the fracas that happened at the National Assembly complex yesterday, more than 120 lawmakers immediately appended their signatures for the impeachment of President Goodluck,immediately House reconvenes in December.

Speaker Aminu Tambuwal, whom the People’s Democratic Party led government insists is no longer a lawmaker following his defection to the All Progressives Congress was shut out and teargassed by the Police.

That action angered Lawmakers who vowed to sack Jonathan from Aso Rock.

Mohammed Zakari, chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, while reacting on it said “the notice of impeachment was not on the order paper today but I’m not foreclosing that some other things took place.”

On his part, Leo Ogor, deputy House Leader who urged members to jettison such plans, argued that the notice of impeachment is inconsequential, as the President had no hand in what transpired at the National Assembly.

“The President is unaware so bringing it (impeachment) up is going to be defeated. The President has done no wrong, impeachment should not even be part of the issue,” he pleaded.

Similar agitation by aggrieved lawmakers to move for impeachment of Emeka Ihedioha, deputy Speaker during the brief closed door session, was however averted by the Speaker who called for calmness.

The lawmakers Vanguard further gathered that appended their signatures are of the APC extraction.
