Forty-nine Senators of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have written to Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to inform him of their vote of confidence in his leadership, and that of his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole had on Friday vowed that the party will work for his impeachment “in accordance with the law”.
DAILY POST had reported how the 49 Senators jointly declared their support for the duo last Tuesday.
The development followed the siege on the National Assembly.
Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, in a swift reaction, sacked Lawal Daura as the Department of State Services (DSS) Director General, for what the presidency described as unauthorised action.
On Sunday, a source close to one of the lawmakers told said that Saraki received the letter of support at the weekend.
He said: “The PDP Senators expressed their support for him and Ekweremadu. They also condemned the invasion of the legislature by law enforcement agencies.
“They stated that any illegal impeachment plot by the APC was – in their words – dead on arrival.
“I can also confirm to you that the two Senate leaders also have some support within the APC caucus.”
