EVEN 36 APC controlled-states combined cannot impeach Senate President Bukola Saraki from office, a People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in Delta State, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has averred.
The former governorship aspirant was mockingly reacting to the All Progressives Congress (APC) chairman, Comrade Adams Oshomhole’s persistent calls for the impeachment of Senate President, Dr Saraki for defecting from APC to PDP.
Onuesoke said Oshiomhole’s demands on Saraki to resign or be impeached described the APC chairman as someone who is day-dreaming and hallucinating.
He stressed that it would be highly impossible, without corruptible imputations, for APC to muster 73 Senators in a chamber of 109 Senators to impeach Saraki.
“Oshiomhole should do the headcount. APC does not have the vote to remove Saraki. Even trying lawlessness to remove him won’t work.
“But if he insists that senators should vote, APC will lose against Saraki for as many times as possible,” Onuesoke opined.
The PDP chieftain pointed out that the leadership of the Senate could and must only be decided by elected senators, stressing that Oshiomhole, as APC Chairman, is totally out of place to lecture Nigerians on who to lead the Senators.
“I don’t know where Oshiomhole was when Tambuwal defected from the PDP to APC with PDP’s speakership. APC accepted him with so much happiness.
“The other day, Akpabio defected to APC and Oshiomohle was dancing. Why is he so pained and angry now that Saraki has decided to leave APC?” he queried.
