The Senate President, Bukola Saraki,  appears to be ready to give the ruling party All Progressive Congress a run for its money.

Saraki, on Sunday, affirmed his decision to not step down as president of the senate.

This comes after his former party, APC, insisted that since his defection to the PDP, it would be honorable for him to relinquish the senate president’s seat for a member of the APC.

The party chairman, Adams Oshiomole, has repeatedly stated that if Saraki does not resign honorably, he would be impeached.

Saraki, who visited Niger state on Sunday for consultations on his presidential bid, spoke with newsmen and vowed not to step down.

“The APC members know that we are in the majority and whatever they want to do they know that they don’t have the number. The other kite they are trying to fly is asking me to step down from my seat, but I can tell you that this cannot be possible as I will not step down. 

"One thing is very clear and that is to say that I will not sacrifice the interest of the country for my personal interest and in the last three years as a Senate president, I have demonstrated that my interest is second to that of national interest,” he said.
