What Will ‘Surprise’ Nigerians When NASS Reconvenes On Tuesday – Senator Ibrahim
The Senate Committee Chairman on Banking, Insurance, and other Financial Institutions, Senator Rafiu Ibrahim has said the only political development that will surprise the public when the National Assembly reconvenes to consider the 2019 election budget on Tuesday will be the removal of Senate President Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu by the All Progressives Congress, APC, senators
According to him, what will be news coming from the senators clamouring for the removal of Saraki was their mustering of a two-third majority, adding that anything short of that would not be acceptable to the whole world.
The senator, who was one of the recent high-profile defectors from the APC to the PDP, said in a chat with Daily Independent newspaper: “The only surprise we are expecting now is for them to gather the 2/3 as required by the constitution. We are sure the whole world will not accept another.”
Senator Ibrahim, in a joint statement with Senator Isa Hamma Misau, had warned his colleagues in the APC not to foment any trouble when the Senate resumes, saying Senate President Saraki will never resign from the position.
The senators had warned those clamouring for Saraki’s removal that they would meet their match if they tried anything illegal, even with all the deployment of security forces which they might have been assured of by the executive arm of government.
“We will use our strength to defend the position of the present leadership of the Senate under Dr. Saraki and Senator Ike Ekweremadu.
“We will defend democracy and rule of law against the pretenders. We will show that every senator represents different constituencies in our country,” they had said.
