Pro-Saraki senators plot to suspend anti-Saraki senators

13 July 2016, 16:39

Abuja - Group of senators who worked for the emergence of Bukola Saraki as Senate President, met on Monday to plot the suspension of senators who wrote the petition that led to the trial of Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, Tribune reports.

The pro-Saraki senators resolved to push for the suspension of Senators Kabiru Marafa and Suleiman Hunkuyi, who were allegedly believed to be behind the petition.

The Senate president was said to have submitted at the executive session that he was taken to court when the Senate was on recess.

Senator Melaye, a pro-Saraki senator, was said to have expressed anger over the trial of Saraki and Ekweremadu for alleged forgery of Senate Standing Rules 2011.

News24 previously reported that the Senate on Tuesday threatened to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.

The Senators who met behind closed doors were incensed by the proposed trial of the leadership of the Senate for forgery.

Before Tuesday’s executive session, there had a series of meetings at the home of Senator Aliyu Wamakko (APC, Sokoto) to plot a total onslaught on President Buhari in the coming days.

Leading the pack of senators calling for the impeachment of Buhari are Senators Dino Melaye, Senators Danjuma Goje, Jibrin Barau, Isa Misau and Peter Nwaoboshi.
