APC Dares Bukola Saraki To Reconvene Senate

The All Progressives Congress has dared the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to reconvene the Senate if indeed he was not disturbed about moves to impeach him.

APC, through its national publicity secretary, Yekini Nabena, said on Sunday the party’s position was its response to Saraki’s declaration that he was not losing sleep over threats to unseat him following his decision to dump APC for the opposition People’s Democratic Party.

Saraki has told reporters in Asaba on Saturday that he was not bothered about the APC plot against him, but Nabena said, “He will be removed democratically. Let him reconvene the senate first since he feels we in APC don’t have the numbers required to impeach him.”
