The All Progressives Congress (APC) isn’t giving up on its mission to impeach the president of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, who recently defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
At a press conference on Friday in Abuja, the APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, said the party has two targets when it comes to Saraki.
– To impeach him as senate president, and,
– To ensure he is defeated in Kwara state, where Saraki would be hoping to run for reelection in his Senatorial district.
In his words:
“Saraki failed to understand that the Nigeria 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.
“The people of Kwara state are fed up with Saraki and we are fed up with Bukola… 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,” Oshiomhole said.
According to the APC chairman, the only way Saraki can avoid impeachment is for him to resign and do what is “honourable”.
