Reps Threaten To Impeach President Goodluck Jonathan by Nobody: 12:24am On Jul 20, 2012
By Ini Ekott

The lawmakers say Mr. Jonathan will be impeached if the 2012 budget is not properly implemented.

The face-off between the House of Representatives and President Goodluck Jonathan continued, Thursday, as some lawmakers served Mr. Jonathan a shocking impeachment warning, threatening to remove him from office if the 2012 budget was not fully implemented by September.


The impeachment warning by the Lawmakers followed a motion by Femi Gbajabiamila, the Minority Leader.

Citing an order of privilege, Mr. Gbajabiamila, a member of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), argued that the president was in negligence of his primary duty of implementing the budget which would have addressed the nation’s poor infrastructure.

"The President, by failing to implement the budget as passed by this honourable House, violates the 1999 Constitution and is therefore liable to be impeached under section 143 of the 1999 constitution," Mr. Gbajabiamila said.

The lawmaker said that while the House should respect the President's personality, there was need to mete out the penalty, as a deterrent to leaders who flout the laws.

"Therefore, I want to hereby submit, that come September, we will begin to invoke and draw up articles of impeachment of Mr. President," he declared while receiving a rousing support of members.

Blame Finance Minister

Mr. Gbajabiamila had hardly finished his speech when he was interrupted by Karibo Soalaboye (PDP/Bayelsa), who represents the President’s constituency in the House.

Mr. Soalaboye maintained that budget concerns should be laid at the table of the Ministry of Finance.

The Speaker, Aminu Tambuwal, agreed with Mr. Soalaboye and sustained his argument.

Poor budget implementation

The impeachment threat came on the heels of a motion by Albert Sam-Tsokwa (PDP/Taraba) and 20 others on the non-implementation of budgets by the Executive.

Mr. Sam-Tsokwa described the budget implementation as an annual national failure, saying only 30 per cent of the budget was implemented on average.


The motion was widely debated by 20 Chairmen of key House committees, including the Committees on Appropriations, Finance, Works, Agriculture, Customs, Gas, and Petroleum(Upstream).

Mr. Sam-Tsokwa expressed concern that seven months into the 2012 fiscal year, the implementation of the budget, as reported by the MDAs, indicates that the recurrent expenditure is judiciously implemented, while the capital expenditure is abysmally implemented.

Blame Jonathan for PIB delay

Earlier, Mr. Tambuwal called on Nigerians to hold the President responsible for the eventual delay that the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) may face.

Mr. Jonathan was accused of sending the new PIB to the House on a day the chamber was commencing its annual break. The lawmakers commenced their annual break after Thursday’s sitting and are expected to resume on September 17.

The decision of the President to submit the bill to the lawmakers, a day to their recess, was criticized with some lawmakers suggesting the bill be rejected.

When you legislathieves and legislooters [/b]resume from your [b]unmerited annual leave , simply debate the bill thoroughly . . Sep 17 - Dec 17 is a long duration to effectively debate and accent the PIB bill for passage, if your all sincerely committed to progress . . .

The crooked legislatives are just seething cos they feel GEJ used, and is still using Otedola to ridicule and expose thier folly and stvpidity grin

P:S : - @ Their threat of Impeachment

Na wa. Anyways, we are watching. The way Nigeria is going, I don't know if we will have a country by 2015. Everything is just so disorganized. I think people should start listening to the warnings Musiwa keeps reiterating on this forum, his satelite pictures aside. I mean, how long are we going to continue this way as a country?

The current members of House of Reps are too rooted in corruption to succeed in pursuing an uphill task of impeachment process to logical conclusion.

Re: Reps Threaten To Impeach President Goodluck Jonathan by Nobody: 6:51am On Jul 20, 2012
How can they say that budget implementation is below fifty percent? If seventy percent of the budget goes to recurrent expenditure, then the budget implementation should be above fifty percent.
Their impeachment threats can't move GEJ, they have been disgraced and will continue to be disgraced.
House of ràpes indeed!

When house of rep threatened to look into the petroleum subsidy saga, they were indirectly asking the looters to bribe them or else....

Otedola gave them what they wanted but set them up with recorded phone conversation and video proof

Now they are indirectly asking GEJ to bribe them or face impeachment.......mtcheeew ..,no wonder OBJ called them armedrobbers
