Anti-Saraki senators plot to impeach him

28 September 2015, 14:04

Abuja - Senators that are opposed to Bukola Saraki’s leadership of the Senate are poised to ask for his resignation when the upper federal legislative chamber re-opens on Tuesday, reports NewsDay.

The anti-Saraki Senators are citing the trial of the Senate President by the Code of Conduct Tribunal for alleged false asset declaration as a reason for Saraki to go.

The senators, who belong to the Senate Unity Forum, have already started wooing senators loyal to Saraki to join them.

Part of the plot would include sponsoring of a motion by a member of the group to draw the attention of the Senate to the trial of Saraki and plead with him to safe himself from unnecessary distraction by stepping aside for adequate concentration at the tribunal.
