Ashafa backs Reps’ impeachment moves against Jonathan

Senator Gbenga Ashafa has expressed support for the impeachment of President Goodluck Jonathan by members of the Federal House of Representatives.

Ashafa, who represents Lagos East senatorial district, threw his weight behind the move while speaking with newsmen at the closing ceremony of a two-day Pre-Election Retreat organised for his constituency staff at Jibowu, Lagos.

He said: “As a senator and I represent one of the vibrant and patriotic people that know that Nigeria will remain one. Am one of those who believe it will be better. And if members of the House of Representatives believe that their action in that process will make Nigeria better, so be it.”

Ashafa, who noted that the impeachment move had nothing to do with party affiliation, said:   “All Progressives Congress, APC, has the passion to emancipate the people from shackles of poverty and that’s what Ashafa also stands for, that is what the good people of Nigeria wants to translate at the centre to in order to spread the dividends of democracy across the states.”
