PDM Wants Jonathan To Reply Obasanjo’s Letter or Face ImpeachmentFeatured, Latest News, News Tuesday, December 17th, 2013
The People’s Democratic Movement, PDM has asked President Goodluck Jonathan to immediately react to former President Obasanjo’s letter or face impeachment from the National Assembly.
This call was contained in a statement issued by the party’s spokesperson, Ahmadu Abubakar and made available to African Examiner.
Part of the statement reads:
“We read with consternation and disbelief the open letter addressed to President Goodluck Jonathan by former president Olusegun Obasanjo, which was released to the media last week. The allegations contained in the said letter are earth-shaking and troubling to say the least.
“The decision of the President to ignore these allegations – for now – is quite troubling and unfortunate. More than that, it is totally inexplicable and unacceptable that the leader of our nation can assume that the nation can wait until he feels the need to explain these grave allegations, some of which border on treason,”
“Nigerians have a right to know the truth about these allegations – especially those impacting on his job as president – immediately (and) not when the President chooses to respond. It is not a matter of choice – it is a matter of duty for the President to respond immediately, failing which his government loses the legitimacy to continue to govern and he loses the moral right to continue to lead the country,”
“We call on the National Assembly to fully and painstakingly investigate these allegations, beginning by asking the President to fully explain himself and absolve himself of them; failing which, it should commence impeachment proceedings against him,”
