The People’s Democratic party has stated that there’s nothing the APC can do to remove Senate President Bukola Saraki or Deputy Iyke Ekweremadu

The PDP in a statement by the National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said that the APC will be unsuccessful in any plot to bring down the Senate President who defected from the APC last week.

Ologbondiyan said that APC had neither the legislative number nor the constitutional facilities to pull off a removal of Saraki and Ekweremadu.

The statement said that the APC decided to resort to underhanded tactics after realizing that it lacked constitutionally required two-third votes of the 109 senators to hold any sway in the National Assembly.

“Even before then, Nigerians were already aware of moves to use humongous funds to induce lawmakers to trigger crisis in the National Assembly and pave the way for the removal of presiding officers. “Now that they have discovered that there is no way they can achieve their devious intentions, they have commenced a war of blackmail, distortions of fact and media trial against the Senate leadership.

“It is therefore instructive for both the Presidency and the APC to know that there is no way they can remove the leadership of the National Assembly, particularly the Senate.” It cautioned against over-heating the polity and attempts to circumvent rules and the Constitution, saying that such would not change the resolve of Nigerians to vote out APC in 2019.”
