PHOTONEWS: Protest At Ministry Of Justice Over Impeachment Of Kogi State Speaker

Former house member Dino Melaye led protesters to counter the illegal impeachment of the speaker of the Kogi State  House of Assembly in Abuja on Friday.

Below is the letter protesters submitted to the office of the  minister of justice.


The Honorable Minister of Justice
Attorney General of the Federation   
Federal Ministry of Justice

Dear Hon. Minister,
Implication Of Unlawful Impeachment Of Kogi State Speaker
It is with great sense of responsibility; patriotism and duty to our great Nation, Nigeria that we are writing to call your attention to the conspicuous lawlessness, aberration and democratic unfaithfulness going on in Kogi State. We are appealing to you as the Chief Law officer of the Federation to make a categorical statement on this issue of twelve (12) Members impeachment of the Speaker in the House of twenty five (25) Members.
Secondly, the requirement of the law is that for the Speaker to be removed, it has to be two third of the majority; meaning about 17 Members.
Thirdly, 12 Members do not form a quorum let alone proceeding on discussion talk less of impeachment of the Speaker.
If this lawlessness is not condemned it will be a national disgrace capable of setting a wrong precedent that could lead to breaking down of laws and order.
We are therefore certain that you will use your good office to call to order the people involved in this act of lawlessness.
We are giving 72 hours to the Minister of justice and the Attorney General of the Federation to clear the air on this matter or else we shall occupy the Federal Ministry of justice.
Kindly accept our assurances of your high esteem.
Yours sincerely,

Otunba Hon. Dino Melaye
Executive secretary
