The Court case to hault the Impeachment process against Mr. President has been nullified

The case seeking to restrain members of the House of Representatives from impeaching President Goodluck Jonathan over the alleged failure to implement the 2012 budget has been thrown out of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Friday.
 Justice Gabriel Kolawole the presiding judge said that the court must be very certain that the impeachment proceedings was on course before it could entertain the suit in order not to interfere with the responsibilities of the legislative arm of government. He further held that section 143 (1) of the 1999 constitution required a joint impeachment resolution of both arms of the National Assembly before the president could be removed.
