Senate President Bukola Saraki in his reaction to a recent statement issued by Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said that a million Oshiomhole cannot remove him from office.
Oshiomhole had in a statement on Friday said that Saraki will be impeached according to law and democratic norms.
Saraki however in his apparent response through his aide, Yusuph Olaniyonu, said that the call for Saraki’s impeachment is only a wishful thinking.
“We hereby assure this garrulous, tactless and reckless APC chairman that a million of Adams Oshiomhole cannot remove Saraki as Senate President. His illegal plots, can only feed his insatiable ego and keep him awake at nights. But it will remain an exercise in futility.
“The position of Oshiomhole and his cohorts in the APC that the Senate President must resign is a mere wishful thinking.
“They will continue to dream about their planned removal of the Senate President. They will need 73 Senators to lawfully remove Dr. Saraki and they will never get that in the present eight Senate.
“The argument of APC that the Senate President must come from a majority party; that the Senate Presidency is their crown and National Assembly is their palace is only supported by ignorance and dangerous delusion.
“First, the issue of which party is in the majority will only be resolved when the Senate resume.
“Two, Section 50 (1) (a) of the constitution is clear that any Senator can be elected as Senate President. If the only thing left of the APC change agenda is to change the Senate President we can only wish them good luck.”
