Following allegations that some members of the House of Representatives are planning an impeachment plot against of Speaker Yakubu Dogara, the chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Public Petitions, Uzoma Nkem-Abonta, yesterday said more than 340 of the members of the House are in support of Dogara, which renders attempts for his removal an impossibility. The Abia State lawmaker made this known while responding to questions from journalists yesterday in Abuja. According to Nkem-Abontat, “I am sure that less than 10 members are the ones against him, meaning that 90% or more stand with Dogara.
“Looking at the output of the 8th House, you can understand that majority of members enjoyed, and are still enjoying the leadership style of Dogara, notwithstanding our differences at take-off. Until the so-called padding, Dogara had no issue in the House. I’m from Abia State, I have not seen the register, but I can say authoritatively that no member from Abia will sign against him (Dogara), we all love Dogara. It is true he is human, he may have his shortcomings, but we all love him. Dogara has maintained a cool, level-head leadership, so no need for change of leadership. He cannot please 360 people, and nobody is perfect. Those who are aggrieved should use in-house mechanism to address issues. He cannot place everybody where they want to be.”
