Bukola Saraki, Nigeria’s Senate president, has lashed out at the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) stating that Oshiomhole’s effort to remove him from office will amount to nothing.
Saraki said this in a statement, according to Premium Times, while reacting to Oshiomhole’s call for his resignation or removal earlier.
The APC chairman had accused Saraki of not acting in the interest of Nigeria and asked that he (Saraki) should resign or be removed from office.
Oshiomhole expressed dissatisfaction at the way the Senate adjourned two weeks ago. He accused Saraki of using his guest house as a place to write out the names of senators decamping to the PDP from the APC the day before the Senate adjourned.
“In any case, Saraki is not going to be the first Senate president to be impeached and I doubt if he is going to be the last but definitely he will be impeached according to law and to democratic norms. The only way Saraki can avoid impeachment is for him to do what is honourable which again leads to the issue of character,” Oshiomhole said.
In his statement titled, Response to Adams Oshiomhole, the lawmaker accused Oshiomhole of behaving like a “rain-beaten chicken” as though Saraki was haunting his life.
While he reminded the APC chairman of how he “crawled” to him, seeking his support to become the chairman, Saraki stressed that Oshiomhole cannot remove him 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,” he said.
