APC Debunks Alleged Plot, Insists Senate President, Deputy Must Go

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed PDP’s allegations of a plot to remove the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, saying that there was no truth in them.

The Acting National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr Yekini Nabena, dismissed the allegation in a telephone interview in Abuja, on Sunday.

He wondered why the PDP, Saraki and his Deputy were afraid if they had nothing to hide.

The APC spokesman explained that the APC had not hidden its desire to ensure the removal of the two principal officers.

Nabena said, “They (Saraki and Ekweremadu) are just scared of their own shadows. If they have nothing to hide, why are they afraid? They believe that nobody can impeach them.

“It is very simple; if you believe you have the numbers (to remain in office), there is no need to be afraid. We expect the Senate to resume on Tuesday; our senators will go there; thankfully, we have two more brand new senators; so it is for them to swear them in.

“Like the comrade chairman said, we are going to use democratic means to remove them and let them also remember when Saraki became Senate President more than half of our senators were at the International Conference Centre, why is he now afraid? There is nothing like the APC and its Senators plotting to cause crisis on the floor of the Senate. The PDP thinks that everybody will behave like them; we are going to go there to follow the law and due process to ensure the right thing is done.”
