Senate Majority Leader, Ahmed Lawan, has assured the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and President Muhammadu Buhari, that the party’s senate caucus will impeach Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, when lawmakers reconvene.
Senator Lawan said this during the APC Presidential Convention, which held at the Eagle Square, in Abuja, at the weekend.
The national convention ratified Buhari’s candidacy as the flag-bearer of the ruling party in the 2019 presidential election.
There, Lawan said, the APC senate caucus intends ‘to force through lots of things.’
He, however, made a passionate appeal to the Presidency and the APC national leadership to intervene in the challenges some of the National Assembly members are facing; to scale the APC primaries in their respective states. He specifically asked for the national leadership’s mediation.
Said Lawan: “The senate wishes to assure you that we will remain in our caucus determined, focused and resolved to work with you.
“On July 15, this year, when we had unceremonious closure of the Senate and the National Assembly for the first time, we had the most cohesive, united and focused APC caucus in the Eighth senate. We remain committed to you and the programmes of this administration. We remain loyal to our party, and we shall continue to support any programme of this administration.
“We thank Mr. President for supporting senators who have remained committed and loyal to this party.
“I want to take this opportunity to thank the chairman and leaders of the party, for supporting us at the most difficult times in the history of our primaries. I want to add that it is not yet uhuru for some of us. We believe that there are still some issues to be resolved in favour of some of our colleagues.
“I want to also add that the number of senators of APC in the senate remains the largest. I want to call the attention of everyone here to the fact that democracy, as defined by people, remains government of the majority, where minority will always have their say.
