I’ll Not Step Down — Saraki Tackles APC

Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has boasted that he can never be impeached, saying All Progressives Congress, APC, championing the cause is in minority and does not have the powers to carry out the threat.

He also made it clear that he would never step down as Senate president as demanded by the APC.

According to him, succumbing to such calls will only amount to sacrificing the national interest of the country for personal interest.

Saraki, who spoke in an interview with newsmen in Minna, Niger State, as part of his presidential campaign, yesterday, said: “The APC members know that we are in the majority and whatever they want to do they know that they don’t have the number.

“The other kite they are trying to fly is asking me to step down from my seat but I can tell you that this cannot be possible as I will not step down. “One thing is very clear and that is to say that 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 the nation.”

He condemned the calls from various quarters on the Senate to suspend its recess and resume, adding that it was a collective decision by all members to adjourn and that the recess was under the ambit of law.

He said the National Assembly has, therefore, not contravened any section of the procedures in embarking on the recess and reconvene when it was time to resume from break.
