The Senate, on Sunday night, released a statement ruling out the possibilities of removing Senate President, Bukola Saraki, before the end of his tenure, in June 2019.
The Senate disclosed that some highly placed persons are bent on removing Saraki as the Senate President.
Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, who made the confirmation to Journalists in Abuja, said any plot to remove Saraki from office would fail, because the Lawmakers had no problem with him.
Abdullahi revealed that in the build-up to the emergence of the National Assembly presiding officers in 2015, the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, had backed Ahmad Lawan for the position, a move that was opposed by the Lawmakers who later elected Saraki.
“Nobody can remove Saraki. We elected him, and we are not ready to remove him. From day one, they never wanted Saraki. What we are saying, is that the right to choose the Senate President lies with Senators, and we have chosen our Leader.
“From everything he has been doing as Chairman of the National Assembly, and as President of the Senate, he has provided stability. He has not only brought this to the National Assembly, but the entire country. The true face of democracy is the Parliament, and since Saraki came in, we have not failed this democracy”, Abdullahi said. See list of top APC Senators ….
