Aso Villa under fire as 120 lawmaker sign Jonathan’s impeachment notice

                               
Trouble is looming for the Nigerian president, Goodluck Jonathan as 120 House of Representatives members may have signed to commence impeachment proceedings against President Goodluck Jonathan. The lawmakers are members of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

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.
