The PDP has accused the APC of seeking an interim court order to declare vacant the seat of the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki.

The PDP's National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said in a statement on Friday that the alleged plot was because of the defection of the Senate President.

“The PDP alerts that credible information at its disposal showed that some cabals in the Presidency and APC had perfected a plan to institute a lawsuit to challenge the validity of Saraki’s seat with the sole aim of securing a fraudulent injunction to force him out of office pending the determination of the substantive suit,” Ologbondiyan claimed.

He alleged further, “Intelligence available to us shows that once they are able to secure the injunction from a particular compromised judicial officer, they intend to arraign and detain the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, on trumped-up charges and ensure he is not granted bail so as to keep him out of circulation while their men would move in to effect an illegal leadership change in the Senate.”

The PDP spokesperson, however, said his party was confident that the Chief Justice of Nigeria would protect the sanctity of the judiciary, especially at this time in the country’s history. He called on the institution of the judiciary at all levels to immune itself from being used by those he called “enemies of our democracy”, saying no house falls leaving its roof standing.
