Saraki Agrees To Vacate Seat, If...
Senate President Bukola Saraki has agreed to vacate his seat.
However, a condition has to be met if he must go. Two third members of the Senate must call for his removal.
Saraki said this on Wednesday while addressing a 'World Press Conference' on Tuesday’s siege to the National Assembly by the Department of State Services (DSS).
Saraki said he was not desperate to stay in office.
“The day two-third of our members no longer have confidence in us, we will leave this place,”

The Senate President defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in July, sparking calls for his resignation/impeachment by the ruling party.
The implication of Saraki's statement means that the APC will require the support of 73 senators out of the total 109 in the Senate to achieve such a resolution.
Currently, the party has 53 senators and would require the support of twenty other senators from the PDP, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and African Democratic Party (ADC).
