He further said that, “I’m afraid that if he fails to resign by next week he will be impeached” honestly the process is so easy, PDP have 26 out of the 32 honorable Members in the State house of Assemble, as we speak I’m aware of the fact that, nothing less than 23 Signatures is secured for the process, infact 2 out of the opposition party APC members are in, making it 25 out of the 32 members.
