The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, has said the embattled president of the Senate, Dr Bukola Sarak deserved to be sacked from his seat because the ruling party was not ready to accept minority rule.
He therefore reiterated his call for the removal of Sara,i from the exalted officce.
Oshiomhole who spoke at a meeting with the APC Senators and members of the House of Representatives, in Abuja, on Tuesday, said the party would not let the matter lie, but would ensure Saraki’s removal both legally and democratically, but without expatiating.
The party chairman also lashed at a section of the Nigerian media for pandering to the dictates of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
He said this was by way of reporting the faceoff between the executive and the legislature as if the APC was the aggressor party.
Oshiomhole said, “We will impeach Saraki legally and democratically.
“The only way he can avoid impeachment is to either resign or return to the majority party- even then we will not accept him, he should remain where he is.
“No amount of blackmail or sponsored analysts can stop his removal.”
He also said the threat of a government shut down was imminent as such there was the need for lawmakers on the APC platform should do everybody legally possible to reconvene the National Assembly in order to approve President Muhammadu Buhari’s request for the passage of INEC’s 2019 Election budget.
The meeting has gone into a closed-door session.
