The Minority in Parliament has initiated impeachment process against President John Dramanai Mahama following the Ford Expedition he received from Mr Kanazoe, the Burkinabe Contractor as a gift which a section of Ghanaians described as a bribe.
According to the Deputy Minority Leader, Mr Dominic Nitiwul, the process has reached an advanced stage as the Minority NPP Legislatures have started assembling the signatures of members of the House in their attempt to press home for the impeachment of the President.
He disclosed that, so far about fifty (50) members of parliament from the Minority side have appended their signature in a move to either call for a parliamentary investigation into the alleged bribery or commence impeachment proceeding to get the President out of office.
Mr Nitiwul made this known at the campaign launch of NPP at the Anyaa- Sowutuom Constituency in the Greater Accra Region over the weekend.
According to the Bimbila MP, the NPP Minority could galvanize more than Ninety Three (93) Members required by law to initiate impeachment process against the President in a bid to remove him from Office.
‘Do you want us to impeach President Mahama?If the Minority wants to take that steps, we need only 93 Members of Parliament. The NPP has only 122 Members of Parliament. So we are more than capable of impeaching the President. If you want us to do that you will hear from us. All we are saying is that, change is coming soon.
Meanwhile the Majority in Parliament has condemned the move by the Minority and described it as an exercise in futility which would not amount to anything.
