APC shops for Saraki’s replacement

23 September 2015, 12:20

Abuja - Strong indications have emerged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is shopping for a replacement for embattled Senate President, Bukola Saraki, reports NewsDay.

Saraki is facing a 13-count charge bordering on alleged corruption and false declaration of assets levelled against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

The trial has provided the party the opportunity to move against Saraki, who emerged the Senate President in defiance to the party’s choice.

Barring any last minute change of plan, Saraki may be asked to resign or step down from the seat to concentrate on his trial.

The other plan is that if he refuses to step down, he may be impeached on moral ground .

APC is said to be considering former Senate Leader, George Akume, and three other ranking senators from the South West zone as Saraki’s replacement.

Senator Ahmed Lawan who was anointed by APC as its sole candidate but lost to Saraki would emerge Senate Leader from the North East, since the Speaker of the House Representatives, Yakubu Dogara is also from the zone.
