APC Dares Saraki
Senate president, Bukola Saraki seems unruffled by an impending impeachment.
But the All Progressives Congress (APC) believes Saraki is afraid of reconvening the lawmakers so as to avoid being ousted.
The National Assembly is on recess and will not reconvene untill September 25.
Saraki had told journalists in Asaba on Saturday that he has nothing to worry about, but the rule of law must be followed.
“You can look at me. I am not losing any sleep about it (impeachment threat). We believe democracy must go by the rule of law.
“There are processes, constitutional processes over what we do. So, I am not concerned about that.
“There are lots of noise being made about that but be sure that once we resume, the processes are followed, we will see that the noise will fizzle out. So I am not concerned about it.”
But the APC acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena, dared Saraki to reconvene the senate if he was not afraid of being impeached.
“Like we’ve said it before, he will be removed democratically. Let him reconvene the Senate first since he feels we in the APC don’t have the numbers required to impeach him.
“As far as we are concerned, he will leave that seat for a loyal party member to occupy. It is a question of morality, he has left our party which has the majority of Senators and as a party, we agree with our senators that a member of the minority party cannot rule over the majority.”
