How Dr Saraki Can Avoid Looming Impeachment — Oshiomhole
The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has said that the party has resolved to explore every legal means to ensure that the President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, is impeached and replaced with a loyal party member.
This, according to the former governor and now Party Chairman, was part of the decisions taken at a meeting between the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, senators and members of the House of Representatives, in Abuja, on Tuesday.
Oshiomhole in his meeting with the lawmakers, restated his earlier call for the impeachment of Saraki as Senate President, adding that it was an aberration to allow an individual who was a member of a minority party to preside over members of the party in the majority.
His Exact Words:
“Democracy teaches us that the minority have the right to have their say but the majority must have their way.
“So, if we have 56 senators and they have 49 senators, I insist that 49 senators cannot preside over the affairs of a house in which the APC has 56 senators. And I ask them to tell us anywhere in the world where the minority rules over the majority.
“Often times, we take flights to Washington and other places to understudy the American presidential system of government.
“Once you lose the majority, without further ado, you step down. Let me restate that we cannot be subjected to minority rule in the Nigerian Senate and, therefore, whether it is convenient for Distinguished Senator Saraki or not, the truth is whether by morality or by law or by convention, Senator Saraki can only avoid impeachment by toeing the path of honour, step down so that the APC can take over the leadership of the House.
“I want to repeat, Sen. Saraki as President of the Senate will be lawfully and democratically impeached. It will not be illegally done. It will be done according to law and tradition.”
“When Saraki Is lawfully and democratically impeached, his lawyers would be free to go anywhere to contest the legality or otherwise of the action.
“There is no longer a hiding place for the Senate President because Saraki’s time is up.”
