APC, PDP jostle to replace Saraki

31 March 2016, 15:30

Abuja - There are indications that the opposition party and the ruling party in the senate are mapping out strategies to replace the embattled Senate President Bukola Saraki in case he is removed.

The All Progressives Congress senators have vowed to resist any attempt by their PDP colleagues to take over the coveted seat from them.

The PDP senators were said to have met for several hours on Monday night to take a final decision on the issue.

It was not clear whether the current Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, would be allowed to take over the top Senate seat.

A source at the meeting claimed that some people were of the opinion that Ekweremadu should resign alongside Saraki as a sacrifice while an APC senator from the North-Central would emerge as the deputy.

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Peter Nwaboshi, confirming the development, said the PDP would produce the next Senate President.
