POLITICS: Lawmaker Calls For Jonathan’s Impeachment

President Goodluck Jonathan
The Vice Chairman, Senate Committee on Federal Character and Inter- Governmental Affairs, Senator Babajide Omoworare has referred to President Goodluck Jonathan as “incapable”.
Omoworare (ACN, Osun East speaking at the National Assembly yesterday expressed concern over the fact that the President seems to have challenges in his capacity as the number one person in making decisions that affect the nation.
The Lawmaker made reference to the issue of fuel, saying that the trillions spent of fuel subsidy would have been put to better use if refineries were set up, whether by the government or individuals as against importing it in favour of some people.

“…We’ve spent trillions of naira on fuel subsidy. These trillions would’ve been used to set up refineries, whether done by the government or by individuals; it doesn’t matter to the electorate. Fuel can sell for less than N40 per liter in Nigeria if there are enough refineries,” Omoworare said.
The Lawmaker urged the Senators to set aside political party differences and impeach President Jonathan which to him, is in the best interest of Nigerians.
“How many PDP senators will allow you to impeach him irrespective of how bad some of us feel he is? You can’t even raise it, if you do, they (PDP senators) would shout you down. There must be a limit to politics.”
“As senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, if it’s in the interest of Nigeria as a whole that we take a decision let’s take it.”
“The worst we can do to the president is impeachment,” Owoworare said.
