Why NASS Ignores Jonathans Impeacheable Offences Sen Domingo


As the noose of impeachment hangs over some governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Domingo Obende (APC, Edo North) yesterday said the Senate decided to ignored considering impeachable offences committed by President Goodluck Jonathan in the interest of national stability.

Domingo, who spoke on the heels of waves of impeachments and the use of state instrumentality of power by the PDP controlled federal government to suppress opposition, however, expressed fear that if the gale is not checked, the nations nascent democracy faces greater danger.
The lawmaker who is the vice chairman, Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja, spoke to newsmen at his country home of Igarra, in Akoko-Edo local government area of the Edo State.
What is happening is very surprising to a couple of us. First and foremost, there is danger around the corner, danger in the political arena because a political system that ought to be stable, that strive itself on impeachment threat and processes does not augur well.
Who is saying that the president himself has not committed an impeachable offence? That the National Assembly ought to be looking at but because of stability, and because the leadership of the National Assembly is mature in the way it is handling the issues and we look at Nigeria as an entity that must be salvaged and of course, the whole of the African nation is looking at us as the giant of Africa; are we going to be a giant in rascality?
He described as a clear parliamentary misbehaviour a situation where governors who were given mandate by their people are not allowed to exercise the mandate on behalf of the people who elected them.
