Senator Ganiyu Solomon representing Lagos West under the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC and other senators in the National Assembly have described as untrue news making the rounds that 63 lawmakers including eight members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP have signed to impeach President Goodluck Jonathan.
Solomon, a Minority Whip of the Upper House said he is unaware of the plot; neither has he been approached for such plan. “Honestly, I have been in Lagos for quite some time but I have not heard anything like that neither did anybody speak to me about it. But I will be in Abuja on Monday (today), to find out if there is anything like that,” he said.
Similarly, Senator Barnabas Gemade, of the PDP, representing Benue North East also denied knowledge of the speculated impeachment plot.
“I am in my home in Benue, and I don’t want to comment on what I don’t know anything about. I am not aware and nobody has met me on the issue you raised,” he stated.
Corroborating his colleagues' is Senator Joshua Dariye of the PDP representing Plateau Central he said he is not aware of the impeachment plot. “I don’t know anything about that; I am not aware of any such plot,” Dariye said.
Another lawmaker and former governor of Kwara State, Shaaba Lafiagi said he is yet to be informed of any impeachment plot. Meanwhile, indications emerged at the weekend that the House of Representatives may have decided to postpone its resumption date from 3 December until primaries of all the political parties have been concluded.
