PDP and House of Representatives Conspiring to Impeach Jonathan – South/South Leaders

Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr. Sam Jaja, on Friday President Goodluck Jonathan had committed blunders that required his impeachment. Jaja was briefing journalists on behalf of the party’s National Working Committee and he said the PDP was aware that Jonathan had made some errors deserving of impeachment.

This statement by the deputy national chairman has sparked suspicion among certain prominent South/South leaders who believe that the PDP is conspiring with the House of Representatives to impeach the president. President of the Conference of Ethnic Nationalities of Niger Delta, Prof. Kimse Okoko, described Jaja’s comments as “a conspiracy theory” and asked him to name the impeachable offences that Jonathan had committed.

In his words, “Coming from someone from the Niger Delta, it is a conspiracy theory. Let him tell us what the impeachable errors are. Unless he says so it will be unfair for him to come up with this conspiracy theory. It is an irresponsible statement because he has not mentioned the errors.”

Considering the fact that Jaja is also from the same region, the concerned South/South leaders are also suspicious that the national leaders of the party from the region might have been convinced to join the impeachment train.


  1. What then are his impeachable offences that would warrant this kind of assault???

    Fellow Nigerians let’s uphold the hand of our dear president even as he transforms this nation…believe me rebuilding a nation like ours that has been messed up in the past due to bad leadership is not just going to be an easy task, it requires the collaborative efforts of all of us irrespective of our tribe and religion…we need a change! let’s try do something different than just sit back and criticise. Your little moral support/encouragement will go a long way.
    God bless Nigeria.
