A veteran Politician has called on four institutions to join force and impeach President John Mahama for failing to perform as expected of him and his government.

Mr. Joshua Attoh Quarshie said ?the Council of State, Parliament, Trade Union Congress (TUC) and the National House of Chiefs must join force for the impeachment of the President.

Speaking in an interview, the veteran said ?Parliament must impeach the President for economic mismanagement. Parliament has become toothless dog; they take their fat allowances and enjoy other benefits and amenities but don?t do their responsibilities?.

He said Members of Parliament, both majority and minority have failed to do their mandated job, and as a result, ?we need a coalition government right now to take over from Mahama till 2016?.

?MPs have power but they don?t do their duties, that is why Mahama behave like a comedian to the nation when he delivered the State of the Nation address?.

He said President Mahama ?does not value the intelligent of the people of this country. We are in political and economic crisis. People are suffering from economy, electricity and water, yet he appeared to joke in the public while every six months there is an increment of petrol price, causing hardship to every Ghanaian, and Parliament is waiting for who to deliver us?, he asked.

The veteran suggested an ?alternative government should be the New Patriotic Party (NPP) but this time, the responsible National Democratic Congress (NDC) members are needed in the coalition government?.

?People like Dr. Yao Obed Asamoah, Mr. Alban Kingsford Sumani Bagbin, Dr. Ekow Spio Garbrah, Nii Okaidja Adamafio and others from the NDC, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom of Peoples Progressive Party (PPP) two responsible people from the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) and Peoples National Convention (PNC) must all be part of the coalition government but must be headed by the NPP?.

Mr. Attoh Quarshie said Parliament ?must be supported by the National House of Chiefs, which is another branch of corrupt institution who does not perform their duties?.

?Land guards are even better than them and it is time for them to support the Parliament impeachment of the President?.

The veteran said these institutions must receive ?support from the Council of State. From time immemorial that the Council of State was instituted, they have never faced the media on national issues. They take the allowances and other benefit, yet they don?t care about the situation in Ghana. If they want to practice the western life of state, then they must come out and support the MPs to impeach the president and sack all of them from the Presidency?.

According to Mr. Attoh Quarshie, another institution that must support the impeachment is the Trades Union Congress (TUC) and stop being cowards since people are suffering and cannot suffer under such pains.

?The TUC must gather all farmers, market men and women, fishermen, all workers to support Parliament to impeach the comedian President?.

He suggested that ?before the impeachment, the back pay of the police must be paid to them at once since they are going to guard the demonstrators for the impeachment?.

?How can they pay the ex-gratia of the MPs and leave the police, the doctors, the teacher and the nurse?, he asked.

He called on the ?NPP to burry all their differences quickly to embrace the other political parties to run the government till 2016 elections like Western Churchill and Prime Minister Chambery of UK buried their differences and they were able to get the Russians and American on their side to finish the war?.

He was of the view that ?nobody is above the law and the law can be obeyed when it passes through Parliament?.
