Reports coming from Abuja indicate that the House of Representatives? plot to impeach President Goodluck Jonathan has is gathering momentum.
It was reported that 130 Reps signed to support the plot to oust Jonathan on Thursday, but a source revealed that as at Friday, the number had drastically increased to 148.
The plot to impeach the President started as a reaction to the alleged growing impunity by the Federal Government with the recent incident that took place at the nation?s National Assembly, where lawmakers were tear gassed by the police who barred the Speaker Aminu Tambuwal from entering the chambers.
A source within the Senate on Friday disclosed that some senators were inclined to get President Jonathan impeached. He said the ring leader of the plot in the senate is from the Northeast where the President proposes to extend the emergency rule in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States.
Another source said the ring leaders have been meeting to plan how to convince and win other senators to buy into and support the pro-impeachment lawmakers.
He further disclosed that things will get clearer by Tuesday 25 November, 2014, when the Senate is expected to resume plenary.
