The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has vowed to remove the Senate President, Bukola Saraki with its numerical strength in the upper chamber of the National Assembly.
The party stressed that there will be no need for it to spend money to unseat Senator Saraki, who it said had gone back to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from where he came.
The acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, in a statement today, Sunday, said that the party would encourage its lawmakers to use their numerical strength to remove the Senate president following the rule of law and due process.
“The hierarchy of the APC has no business spending money to impeach these people because APC still commands the majority in both houses. Since Saraki has gone back to where he came from, he cannot preside over majority APC lawmakers. Therefore we will use our numerical strength to remove him following the rule of law.
“So let the PDP propaganda machine continue to raise false alarm. We will remain focused and ensure that President Buhari is not distracted by charlatans. Very soon we shall separate the men from the boys.”
Reacting to the claim by R-APC Spokesman, Kaseem Afegbua that APC leadership and officials of the Federal Government are plotting to use illegal means to forcefully re-open the Senate chambers, the party accused opposition of merely weeping up sentiments.
“Afegbua and his cohorts are trying to elicit sentiment and to make futile attempt to dent the integrity of the APC led government.
“The reason why most of them are defecting is because the President Buhari led administration is not sharing money which is the PDP philosophy. So this administration cannot inject tax payers money into impeaching the President of the senate or the Speaker of the House of Representatives.”
The statement said that the APC lawmakers know their rules and that they will apply it accordingly.
