Legislators threatens President Jonathan with impeachment over withdrawal of Tambuwal's aides

The current impasse in the House of Representative over the removal of the security aides of Speaker Aminu Waziri Tambuwal took a new dimension on Monday as the All Progressives Congress (APC) members of the lower chamber hinted that they have catalogued offences committed by 'a higher officer of the Federal Republic' that could warrant impeachment.

This is believed to be an allusion to President Goodluck Jonathan.

This is as the legislators swore that no coalition or conspiracy can unseat the Speaker.

The legislators, who had filed a case in an Abuja High Court seeking to bar any attempt at convening the House before its Dec. 3 date of resumption, told correspondents that the legislature is not subservient to the president.
