The impeachment plot » against President Goodluck
Jonathan is said to have gathered momentum as 63
senators are now said to be backing the plan.
The Senators in question, including eight from the
ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have signed a
document to show their support for the impeachment
notice against the president, Punch reports.
One of the legislators, a member of the All Progressives
Congress (APC), reportedly told Punch that the plans to
remove Jonathan were stemmed from his handling of
the economic and political affairs of the country, a high
level of corruption and “gross disregard” of the
legislature.
“We know and we are prepared to show the President
that we have responsibility to the people and the nation
in general. We are prepared to lay the impeachment
notice anytime from next week. Meetings are already
being held,” the Senator said.
Senator Ibrahim Musa from Niger North said
concerning the proposed impeachment:
“I think there is something like that but I don’t have the
details, it is still coming as a rumour.”
The House of Representatives had earlier said that it
had compiled a list of 50 constitutional violations for
which President Jonathan could be impeached.
