Impeachment: Reconvene Senate If you Dare- Oshiomhole Fires At Saraki
The Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Adams Oshiomhole has dared Senate President Bukola Saraki to reconvene the Senate if he is indeed not scared of Impeachment.
The Chairman was speaking through the acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena, who said that this is in response to Saraki’s statement that he isn’t losing sleep over the plans to impeach him.
Saraki had made this claim in Delta state, where he said: “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.”
According to the PUNCH, Nabena, speaking on behalf of the APC said that if Saraki is feeling so confident, then he should reconvene the Senate and see what happens.
He said: “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.”
