We Are Collecting Signatures to Impeach Jonathan If He Fails to Meet Our Conditions, New PDP Says
Leaders of the breakaway faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has come up with another threat that they will begin a move to impeach President Goodluck Jonathan if he refuses step down or declare to them that he will not contest for the office of the President of Nigeria in the 2015 Presidential election.
The PDP rebels claimed that they have started to compile signatures in both House of Representative and the Senate to move against the President if he refuses to meet the four conditions that Atiku Abubakar lead group gave to the President last week.
“We are demanding that he publicly renounce any ambition to run a second term or face impeachment in the National Assembly. The choice is his”, Atiku group said. They want the President to take an undertaking that none of them will be arrested or tried by EFCC for any corruption charge.
The rebel PDP has 6 Northern Governors and Amaechi, over 20 Senators and at least 57 PDP members in the House of representatives as members.
In 2007, Atiku Abubakar left with some state governors, members of the National assembly and some bigwigs of the Ruling PDP party to ACN and he was roundly beaten in the presidential election.
Atiku abandoned those he left PDP with in 2007 to their own fate and begged to be re-admitted back to PDP in 2010.
Three weeks ago, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar through some of his aides registered the PDM as a Political party with INEC.
