PDP Speaks On Jonathan’s Impeachment Move Today

The Peoples Democratic Party is to speak on the move by the House of Representatives to impeach President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday (today).

The party took the decision after the meeting of its National Working Committee, which was held at the party’s secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday.

It was learnt that the party’s position would be stated by its Deputy National Chairman, Dr. Sam Jaja.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh, stated this after the NWC meeting, which lasted for about five hours.

He did not give any reason why Jaja would be the one to address the journalists on the issue instead of the National Chairman of the party, Dr. Bamanga Tukur.

However, investigations by our correspondent showed that the party might have decided not to put Tukur on the hot spot because of the involvement of Tukur’s son among subsidy suspects to be arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission.

It was learnt that the party felt that Tukur could be embarrassed with questions about the involvement of his son in the subsidy scam.
