Senators elicited on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has warned their counterparts in the All Progressives Congress not to foment trouble when the Senate reconvenes in September.

This is because the APC senators will meet their match in the PDP senators.

The national assembly embarked on its annual recess on July 24 and it is expected to reconvene on September 25.

The upper chamber of the National Assembly has been thrown into crisis since the Senate President Bukola Saraki defected from the APC to PDP.

The APC senators have been calling on Saraki to resigned to avoid trouble when the Senate reconvenes.

However, the PDP senators through Senators Isah Misau and Rafiu Ibrahim on Wednesday said the APC senators will meet their match in them if they attempt to foment trouble.

In a statement on Wednesday, Misau and Ibrahim, accused the APC of focusing on Saraki and making him the subject of all discussions.
The senators asked the ruling party should devote more time to tackling the various issues confronting the country.

“This is the first time in the history of the country that the ruling party will leave the issue of its achievements and start blaming its failure on just one individual, no matter who the individual is,” the statement read.

“It is also the first time a ruling party will plan to hoodwink Nigerians by saying everything wrong under its watch is due to the action and inaction of one man.

“APC has devoted all the time and knowledge of their national chairman, national leader, publicity secretary, four senators and two presidential aides to the daily abuse of Saraki, such that it appears as if Saraki is the only politician in Nigeria today. They have made Saraki the issue in Nigerian politics today.

“If these individuals devote the energy they are exerting on Saraki to finding solutions to the security problem, economic crisis and collapse of infrastructure, among them, they will come out with some action plan, except they are only skillful in mischief making.

“We can see through this plot. The plan is to get Saraki so engrossed in the battle for survival in the senate and the pummeling from the APC cabal such that he will have no time to pursue his aspiration for 2019.


However, this is a short time strategy. It will not work. That is why the man remains unfazed by the antics.

“We are surprised that all the decisions that the senate took as an institution is now blamed on Saraki. Are we also going to give the credit of all the achievements of the senate to Saraki as well?

“You blame a man for what an institution lawfully did. Is this not dishonest? Senate leader, Ahmed Lawan who moved the motion for our adjournment till September 25 and the minority leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio who seconded the motion are in APC, yet they kept quiet when all the falsehood are being peddled now that Saraki unilaterally and hurriedly adjourn the senate.

“Which of the decisions that are now being criticized did the APC pretenders in the senate oppose? Of the ten- man senate leadership, five of them are in APC.  Those who enjoy privileges in the senate now look the other way when the presidency is complaining.

“We will however warn the APC that they will meet a match in those of us in PDP if they try to foment trouble in the senate whenever we resume. They have made many attempts to subvert this Senate, including stealing of our mace, brutalizing of members of staff of the senate invasion of the senate complex with hooded and masked security agents, refusal to sign important bills, using security agents and anti-corruption agencies to intimidate members and the leadership as well as initiating malicious prosecution against members.”
