Rancor in APC over impeachment plot against Senate President Saraki

The national leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is reportedly in disarray over its plot to impeach Senate President Bukola Saraki.

According to The Guardian NG, the impeachment plans may have suffered a set back due to suspicion and distrust among the party leadership and the lawmakers.

Newsheadline247 understands one the factors that could force the impeachment plot go down the drain is an emerging acrimony between APC leaders over who to replace Saraki should the impeachment succeed.

The party, according to the newspaper, is also yet to come up with plausible and realistic loyalty reward formula which has provoked suspicion among the lawmakers.

It is the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole that has been openly seeking the immediate removal of Saraki following his defection to the opposing side, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

But despite the series of meetings with the Senate APC caucus in the last few weeks to perfect the impeachment plans, not much action has been achieved by the Senators in the upper chamber.


According to the report, a lawmaker hinted that although Senators are desirous of complying with Oshiomhole’s directive, the caucus is yet to arrive at a unanimous decision on the big question of securing the mandatory Two Thirds Majority of Members of the Senate as required by the Constitution towards the impeachment of the Senate President.

It was gathered that two camps have since emerged in the Senate APC caucus with each having opposing opinion on how to approach the matter, as well as on who succeeds Saraki.

The emergence of the Senate chapter of the Parliamentary Support Group for the President, which has been most vocal and active in its position against the Senate President is said to have equally polarised the Senate APC caucus.
