We are moving into a heated phase in the slow but surely movement to 2015. So far, more than 120 of the lawmakers have appended their signatures for the impeachment of President Goodluck Jonathan as soon as the House reconvenes in December.
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.
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.
Majority of the lawmakers who appended their signatures belong to APC with few PDP members.
