No fewer than 63 senators have signalled their intentions to commence impeachment moves against President Goodluck Jonathan, just as 215 members of the House of Representatives have allegedly signed the impeachment register.
Daily Sun gathered yesterday evening that eight senators on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had joined the ranks of All Progressives Congress (APC) to start the impeachment process.
A ranking senator from the APC confirmed the existence of the list and also, disclosed that some members of the ruling party in the Red Chamber “willingly wrote their names and appended their signatures to commence impeachment proceedings against President Jonathan.”
Reminded that the impeachment process, as stipulated in the constitution, was a lengthy process and that the Seventh Senate might not have the time to see through the process, he replied: “We will start the president’s impeachment once we get the required number. Some of the PDP senators have already signed the register.”
