The Leader of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila yesterday said the All Progressives Congress, APC will soon make available the authentic list of those who endorsed the impeachment notice against, President Goodluck Jonathan.
In a three paragraph statement, the minority leader asked the general public to discountenace the fake list being circulated in Abuja.
The statement read in part said?the general public is hereby advised to disregard a fake impeachment list published by some online publicists for obvious sinister intentions?.
?None of our APC members in the House of Representatives is party to the fake impeachment list?
?The authentic impeachment list would be published in due course and we urge our constituents across the country to be so guided.
Meanwhile, PDP lawmakers condemned the action as their names were displayed in the alleged impeachment notice.
Majority Deputy Leader, Rep Leo Ogor, PDP, Delta described the list as another scam of the APC.
Ogor said??that is another APC scam designed to frustrate us but it won?t fly because as a South South leader in the House it is virtually impossible for me to append my signature on such a notice?.
?If they are bold enough let them officially publish such a list and you will hear the public outcry immediately that is done?.
?Please ignore that scam of a list it is just a figment of their imagination as they do not have more ideas to use to deceive Nigerians?.
Also last Friday Rep Tajudeen Yusuf, PDP, Kogi vehemently denied ever signing such an impeachment notice.
The lawmaker equally challenged the promoters of the impeachment move on the President to publish the names and signatures of those who are behind the alleged impeachment of the President.
The lawmaker in a statement issued in Abuja against the backdrop of ?fictitious? names published by the promoters of the impeachment plot maintained that, he has remained a loyalist of his party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and core supporter of President Jonathan in the House.
According to him, I have never, at anytime, and will never sit, join, participate in any meeting to discuss any move that will work against President Goodluck Jonathan?s lofty transformation agenda, his government or Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
?It is ridiculous and evil for APC in its unfortunate propaganda insert names of PDP members in their ungodly and inept antics to cause crisis in the polity. The APC should not delude itself by ascribing to themselves what they don?t have.
?As at the moment just like in the past, since the inauguration of the Seventh Assembly, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP remains the majority in the House and at no time did PDP lose majority in the House.
?On this note, APC do not and cannot have the number to threaten President Goodluck Jonathan with any impeachment move. Enough of this charade and mis-information?, the lawmaker stated.
Also, House committee chairman on Interparliamentary Relations, Rep Daniel Reyenieju, PDP, Delta, when contacted simply said?I?m not aware of such a list how could I have signed and it is strange to me?.
Speaking almost in the same vein, Deputy Chairman House committee on Commercialisation and Privatisation, Rep Uzoma Nkem-Abonta, PDP, Abia said? I?m not aware of such a notice talkless of signing it?.
?It is a mere speculation that should not be taken sesiously by any serious minded Nigerian?.
?I challenge them to make such a list public and what in the first place makes them feel Mr President can be impeached?.
?Those of us in the PDP should remain focused and should ensure we are not distracted in anyway?.
It cane be recalled that on November 20, lawmakers that reconvened to discuss the extension of Emergency Rule in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe were barricaded from entering the complex.
On that same day, more than 120 lawmakers allegedly signed an impeachment register on the floor of the House designed to serve as a notice for president Jonathan to leave office.
