Why APC Senators backed out from impeaching Saraki – Shehu Sani

The Senator representing Kaduna Central in the upper chamber, Shehu Sani, has revealed why his former colleagues in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) backed out of plot to impeach the Senate President saying that it was because “it is constitutional impossible.”

Senator Sani, who recently dumped the APC for Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), disclosed that much as the party would have wanted the Senate President impeached, the ruling party could not muster the required percent of members of the upper legislative chamber to carry out the plot has ran out of number to carry out it impeachment plan.

His words:

“It is technically impossible to remove Saraki because the APC does not have two thirds majority in the National Assembly. Secondly, Saraki has been able to carry everybody along and provide a leadership to the extent that he is able to accommodate those who are critical of him.

“Thirdly, the opposition are more united and more formidable in their resolve to keep the Senate President than the ruling party in their plot to remove the Senate President.

“So, I can tell you that removing Saraki through constitutional means is very much impossible because the APC is not united to do that. The APC is not having the number to do that and the APC does not have the kind of support it needed to be able to carry out the plot.

“I can tell that APC back out from plot to remove Saraki because they don’t have the number to do that and it is impossible to do that through constitutional means,” he stated
