The All Progressives Congress APC has set to reconvene National Assembly on Tuesday without the consent of the Senate President Bukola Saraki to change the Senate leadership.
One of the agenda is to change the leadership of the Senate and also to deliberate on the approval of the budget of INEC submitted by the President.
The decision for the APC to reconvene the National Assembly is attributed to the comments from the Senate President Bukola Saraki on Saturday in Delta State. When he said,he was not losing sleep over threats to unseat him following his decision to dump the APC to join the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
“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.”
The acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena, said APC will reconvene the National Assembly and Saraki will be impeached democratically.
“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.”
