Senate President, Bukola Saraki has stated that he will not step down from his position despite calls from the All Progressives Congress (APC) for him to vacate his seat.
Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole had earlier said,
“Saraki must vacate the position of Senate president as a matter of honour,” the APC chairman said.
“If he does not choose the path of honour he will be democratically removed as the president of the Senate. I am emphasing logic and political morality plus law.”
Speaking to journalists during his visit to a former military ruler, Ibrahim Babangida, in Minna, Niger State, said the APC lack the numbers to remove him as Senate president.
“One thing is clear, I will not sacrifice the interest of the country for my personal interest, and in the last three years as a senate president, I have demonstrated that my interest is second to that of national interest, I will not step down from the Senate presidency,” Saraki said.
“They know that we are in the majority, and whatever they want to do, they know that they don’t have the number.”
