Few hours ago, senators under the APC banner met with Adams Oshiomhole, Niyi Adebayo and others to perfect the purported impeachment of Saraki and Ekweremadu.
It was recorded in the meeting that to change leadership of the Senate, total of 74 Senators which is 2/3 will be needed and with APC sure of only about 51 to 53 Senators and a good number of the APC Senators out of the country, it will be impossible to get the required number.
Adams Oshiomhole was mandated to contact Mr President to inform him that they don’t have the numbers but with his direct go ahead, they can go ahead to force the plan through. Members broke off for one hour but could not get through the President in UK.
Members agreed to try Mr president again this morning but couldn’t fully agree on who should be the Senate President Between Ahmed Lawan and Akume. There were strong arguments against picking Lawan since he and Speaker Dogara are from the same political zone, while other Senators mostly from the North West strongly oppose having Hope Uzodinma whom one of the Senators referred to as corruption personified as the deputy Senate President. As of the time of filing this report at 6:02am, the Senators are yet to reach an agreement on how to proceed and if the Presidency will be able to immediately congratulate to give legitimacy of they are able to have the kangaroo impeachment.
Senators informed Adams Oshiomhole that it will be best to go ahead with the leadership meeting of resolving the pending National Issues then look for ways to perfect the impeachment but the party chairman and few others were of the opinion that the impeachment must happen within next 48 hours or it can’t happen again. More details to be shared shortly.
