Don’t Impeach Jonathan, Doyin Okupe Begs Senators
The President’s Senior Special Assistant On Public Affairs, Dr Doyin Okupe, has asked the Senate to thread softly with his principal on the purported attempt by some senators to prepare impeachable offences against President Goodluck Jonathan.
Noting that the upper house has in the last four years conducted its legislative functions and responded to issues that are of great national importance with commendable political sagacity, Dr. Okupe believes that this is not the time to talk about impeachment, but to employ political maturity that would protect the country’s nascent democracy in resolving existing disagreement.
The six paragraph statement signed by Dr Okupe reads;
“Confrontation and strong disagreements are not uncommon phenomenon in Executive-Legislative relationship world-wide.
“The recent purported attempt by some Senators to prepare impeachable offences against the President, as reported in some section of the Media, is seen by us in this light.
“We strongly trust and believe in the leadership of the present Senate and the unwavering patriotism and commitment that have been shown by the distinguished members and we trust that ultimately it is this tendency towards true Nationalism that will prevail in the Senate.
“It is our view that there are at present, serious fundamental issues of National importance such as winning the war against terrorism and stabilizing the economy in the face of dwindling oil revenue which requires the full attention, commitment and swift action of distinguished members of the Senate.
“We are of the opinion that all matters political can and will be resolved politically in the overall interest of our democracy and the well-being of our people.”
