The All Progressives Congress APC has come out openly to express its desire to remove the Senate President, Bukola Saraki from office, but said rather than expending millions of Naira of public funds on the project, it would instead deploy its numerical strength in the Upper Chamber to get Saraki out of the way.
Responding to media inquiries about the allegations from its splinter group, Reformed APC which accused her of deploying public funds on a clearly partisan venture. Kassim Afegbua Said they are only trying to elicit sentiments and to make futile attempts at denting the integrity of the APC led government”, “It is the cry of a drowning man.
Nabena said the reason why most of them are defecting is because the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration is not sharing money which is the PDP philosophy.
“So, this administration cannot inject tax payer’s money into impeaching the President of the Senate or the Speaker of the House of Representatives. This is a serious government and not a dead party called the PDP”.

National Assembly members have procedures on how a Speaker or President of the Senate can be impeached. And we believe that the APC lawmakers know their rules and they will apply it accordingly.

Since Saraki has gone back to where he came from, he cannot preside over majority APC lawmakers. Therefore, we will use our numerical strength to remove him following the rule of law
