It was gathered that the lawmakers coordinating the impeachment process have identified over 50 constitutional violations by the President, which would form part of the impeachment notice.

Sources within the House squealed that both chambers have resolved to work together for the common good of the country by removing President Jonathan for “incompetence, corruption and unprecedented impunity.”

According to a source, the impeachment plot against Jonathan was not a partisan affair, stressing that lawmakers from all the political parties have identified with the “cause” and will not give up until the President is “sent packing.”

“I’m sure you read the reports today that senators are going to move against Jonathan. Now you can confirm that the impeachment thing is not about APC. It is a non-partisan cause. We have all resolved that the man (President Jonathan) must go.

“Never in the history of Nigeria has a leader displayed such crass incompetence as we have seen in President Jonathan. It is glaring and you can feel it. Mr. President, with due respect, has shown that he is not capable of running this country. That is the basic truth”, he stated.

The lawmaker noted that over 50 impeachable offences have been identified against the president and members of the House would work hand in hand with the Senate to ensure that the president was ousted in no distant time
