The All Progressives Congress APC has declared that it is determined to oust Senator Bukola Saraki as the president of the senate following over his defection to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
But the party said it would use the higher number of its senators in the senate to achieve the purpose, rather than deploying money as being alleged by the PDP and members of so called Reformed APC,
“It is the cry of a drowning man. Kassim Afegbua and his cohorts are trying to elicit sentiments and to make futile attempts at denting the integrity of the APC led government”, Yekini Nabena, acting Publicity Secretary of the APC said.
“So, this administration cannot inject tax payer’s money into impeaching the President of the Senate or the Speaker of the House of Representatives. This is a serious government and not a dead party called the PDP.
“What PDP is doing is to whip up sentiments before their final burial in 2019. National Assembly members have procedures on how a Speaker or President of the Senate can be impeached. And we believe that the APC lawmakers know their rules and they will apply it accordingly.
“The hierarchy of the APC has no business spending money to impeach these people because APC still commands the majority in both Houses. Since Saraki has gone back to where he came from, he cannot preside over majority APC lawmakers. Therefore, we will use our numerical strength to remove him following the rule of law.
“So, let the PDP propaganda machine continue to raise false alarm. We will remain focused and ensure that President Buhari is not distracted by charlatans. Very soon we shall separate the men from the boys”.
