The 50 Sins Of Jonathan: Lawmakers Set To Work Together For The President’s Impeachment

Published

JONATHAN

Lawmakers spearheading the planned impeachment of President Goodluck Jonathan have identified 50 constitutional violations by the president, for which he should be removed. According to Vanguard, the violations will form part of the impeachment notice.

More than 120 lawmakers have been reported to have appended their signatures for the impeachment of the president, with most of them being members of the House of Representatives. Indications have now emerged that a significant number of members of the Senate are now on the same page with the lower house on the impeachment issue.

Vanguard quoted a top officer in the House as saying that both chambers have resolved to work together on the President’s impeachment over “incompetence, corruption and unprecedented impunity.” The planned removal of the president, according to him, was to serve the common good of the country.

Speaking further, the lawmaker told Vanguard that the impeachment plot has nothing to do with any party, saying lawmakers from all the political parties represented on the National Assembly have identified with the cause.

“I’m sure you read the reports today that senators are going to move against Jonathan. Now you can confirm that the impeachment thing is not about APC. It is a non-partisan cause. We have all resolved that the man (President Jonathan) must go.

“Never in the history of Nigeria has a leader displayed such crass incompetence as we have seen in President Jonathan. It is glaring and you can feel it. Mr. President, with due respect, has shown that he is not capable of running this country. That is the basic truth,” he stated.

    The lawmakers are trying to run away beyond their shadow of which it is very very impossible. This is the first time somebody from the Niger Delta to become a president of this country and they are crying just because somebody from the Niger Delta is rulling them. Our president Jonathan will rull and rull and change the face of this our country, whether they like it or not, Jonathan will continue to take charge over them.

    Nigerians will advocate for only one legislature ie (The Senate). This is part of the austerity measures to cushion the effects of crude oil in the international system where the prices of crude is gradually dwindling down. We will see were radicals like you will be in the political system in 2015.

    I really have not seen what my south south president has done. 1st January 2012 he told Nigerians that subsidy removal will solve all Nigeria’s problems, but where are d results today. As vice president, he became acting president and now full-time president for four years doing nothing. Nigerians, is it d next four years President Jona will do something? it is true that non of these politicians are good but we can choose right.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his nationwide broadcast over the ongoing #EndSARS protest rocking the country.

Recall that Buhari in his speech called for an end to the protest, adding that his government had already accepted and started implementing demands of the protesters.

He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.

Reacting in a statement on Thursday night by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbodinyan, the PDP said Buhari’s address was depressing and failed empathy test.

The party appealed to Nigerians, particularly the youth, to remain calm and allow a return to normal life in the collective quest for peaceful co-existence in the overall interest of the nation.

“It is shocking that security agents and, in some cases, thugs, were reportedly deployed to end the lives of promising Nigerians. This, to say the least, is saddening.
