Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said it would adopt dialogue in the resolution of the impeachment crisis between the House of Representatives and the Presidency.
Sequel to the perceived inability of the Federal Government to implement the 2012 budget as approved by the legislative arm, the House, last week, threatened to commence impeachment proceedings against President Goodluck Jonathan.
Briefing newsmen yesterday after Wednesday’s National Executive Council meeting, Deputy National Chairman of the PDP, Dr Sam Sam Jaja, said that there was no need for any tension as the party has set in motion a process to resolve the seeming impasse and noted that there was nothing new with impeachment threats.
Said Jaja: “This is not the first time any president is threatened with impeachment. In America several presidents have been threatened with impeachment and of course what the party is doing is taking up the process, because there is a process with which the party meets its members.
“Many of them are PDP people, I agree, but they have their grievances. We will not also say that because they are PDP people we will lord it over them. This thing must be attended to diplomatically so that wherever anybody has gone wrong, it will be sorted out and eventually this storm will definitely die down.
“It is not a fluke, that they are not making any sense, it is not also a fluke that the President is making errors that requires impeachment. At times we over bloat these things, but the party has set up machineries to look into all the grievances of the members of the National Assembly and the position of the President.
