Dogara Absent As Oshiomhole Meets APC Lawmakers Over Saraki’s Impeachment
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, on Tuesday meet with the party lawmakers in the Senate and House of Representatives at the Sheraton Hotels.
However, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara, was conspicuously absent from the meeting.
Speaking to lawmakers, Oshiomhole said the meeting was not all about the impeachment of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, as erroneously believed in some quarters.
He, however, insisted that the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, would be impeached through the legal process.

Oshiomhole said: “The lawmakers’ caucus will continue to meet to deliberate on issues affecting the party and I want to say that our meetings are not all about impeachment.
“There will be impeachment of the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, but we will follow constitutional process".
Oshiomhole also added that the APC had a clear majority in the senate with 56 senators, stating that the party could not therefore allow itself to be subjected to the rule of the minority as exemplified by Saraki’s leadership of the upper chamber.
“I believe we now have 56 APC senators. That is more than half. That is a simple majority.
"I am made to understand that we have 109 senators.
"We have 56 out of 109. But we also know for a fact that as we speak, one of the APC senators is in prison for reasons which is not hidden from any Nigerian.
So, if the Senate resumes today, we have 56 of 108 senators and so there is no question of who is in charge.
