Senators divided over Saraki's impeachment

07 April 2016, 14:27

Abuja - Senators backing the leadership of the Senate President Bukola Saraki have vowed to resist every attempt to impeach their embattled leader.

Saraki is facing a 13-count charge of alleged false asset declaration levelled against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau.

The senators said the trial of the senate president is an an attempt by the leading All Progressives Congress to blacklist him before the Nigerian masses.

The senators, who were 12 in number at the Code of Conduct Tribunal on Wednesday, said regardless of its outcome, the trial of Saraki would be subject to other statutory procedure for the impeachment of Nigeria’s Senate President.

‎“For those calling for the impeachment of the senate president, we urge them to avail themselves of the provisions of the law relating to such a sensitive step. They will have to produce as many as 100 senators to achieve that aim. As long as they don’t have the majority, the call is a tall dream that will remain a figment of the imagination of the groups and their sponsors,” the senators said.

During the previous sitting Saraki was accompanied by as much as 80 senators.
