World Press Conference: Attempt To Impeach Me Is An Act Of Cowardice, Saraki Attacks APC

I Will Leave If Impeached By Two-Thirds of Senate, Bukola Saraki Claims

Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, while addressing a World Press Conference at the National Assembly in Abuja has described any attempt to impeach him by some APC senators without the backing of the law as an act of cowardice.

Senator Saraki is addressing the conference one day after officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) laid a siege on the Assembly complex  condemned the action of the security operatives and described it as “an assault” on the nation’s democracy.

The Senate President added that the barricade of the National Assembly gate by security officials was a show of shame which should not have happened in the place instance.

He said the incident was an act of cowardice by those who sought to execute an illegal impeachment without the backing of the law.

Senator Saraki, however, reiterated an earlier warning where he said there was “a government within a government,” stressing that it beat his imagination how such an incident was allowed to happen.

Although Saraki commended Acting President Yemi Osinbajo for his quick response to the issue, he noted that the damage control has not addressed how Tuesday’s incident occurred.

Senate President Bukola Saraki also said he is not desperate to stay in office. However, a condition has to be met: his removal must be by two-thirds majority of the upper chamber.
