JUST IN: Adams Oshiomhole Hides In Shame, As APC Senators Endorse Bukola Saraki To Continue As Senate President

Although the National Leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, had directed its members in the Senate to impeach Senate President, Bukola Saraki, it was gathered that the Senators are more interested in restoring peace to the Upper Legislative Chamber, than doing the former.

Recall, that Saraki has been under pressure to step down as Senate President, since he defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, from the APC.

The National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, had asked the Senators of the ruling party, to remove Bukola Saraki as Senate President, on several occasions.

“Saraki will not be the first to be impeached, and I doubt if he is going to be the last, but definitely he will be impeached according to law, and according to the democratic norms. The only way Senator Saraki can avoid impeachment, is for him to do what is honourable; by stepping down”, Oshimohole had said when the National Assembly was on recess.

Elsewhere, on Monday, Ovie Omo-Agege, an APC Senator from Delta State, had said that the nation’s number three citizen would be removed at the slightest opportunity.

His utterance on the eve of the resumption of the National Assembly, after more than two months, had given the impression that the Lawmakers were in for a stormy session, today, Tuesday.

However, when the Senators resumed today, they went into a closed-door session.

Sources revealed that the issue of calming frayed nerves was the major agenda of the meeting they had.

A Legislative source disclosed that despite the provocation over the defection of the Senate President, the Lawmakers agreed to sheathe their swords and give peace a chance.

“The Senators have seen that the APC is not even fair to them… Frank discussions about the future of the Eighth Senate as it goes into its last stage, held at the closed-door session”, the source said.

“They agreed that nothing would distract them till the end of their tenure.”

Another source added that the Leadership of the APC caucus, in the Upper Legislative Chamber, got a promise from Saraki, that national interest would be paramount in the dealings of the Senate.

“Following their closed-door meeting, the Senators agreed not to allow external forces to cause disaffection or disturbance within the Legislative arm of Government”, the source said.
