Former labour leader and National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has professed that not only will Senate President Bukola Saraki be “definitely impeached” but will also be soundly defeated in his senatorial district in 2019.
Oshiomhole divulged this at a press conference in Abuja on Friday while reacting to Saraki’s stance that to impeach him will require the signature of two-thirds majority of the Senate.
Oshiomole asserted that Saraki will not only be removed but the party will work hard to add salt to injury by making sure he is defeated in his senatorial district in 2019 and he will not return to the senate.
He added that Saraki’s time in the country’s political sphere is over.
“Saraki will not be the first to be impeached and I doubt if is going to be the last but definitely he will be impeached according to law and according to the democratic norms,” Oshiomhole said.
“The only way Senator Saraki can avoid impeachment is for him to do what is honourable, which leads to the issue of character.
“He failed to understand that the Nigerian national project is more complicated and is not that easy. He will not only be impeached, we will work hard to have him defeated as a senator in his own senatorial zone come 2019 by the people of Kwara State who are fed up with him and who are fed up with Bukola.
