The All Progressives Congress has been told that it lacks the legislative and constitutional ability to impeach the President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Peoples Democratic Party, toady which was signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan in Abuja.

The PDP cautioned the APC against moving on in an attempt to remove the leadership of the Senate; adding that its time the party accepts reality.

‘Presidency and the APC, having realised that there was no way they could muster the constitutionally required two-thirds votes of the 109 senators, representing 73 senators, was now engaged in under-hand tactics.

“Even before then, Nigerians were already aware of moves to use humongous funds to induce lawmakers to trigger crisis in the National Assembly and pave the way for the removal of presiding officers.

“Now that they have discovered that there is no way they can achieve their intentions, they have commenced a war of blackmail, distortions of fact and media trial against the Senate leadership.”

“Even among the ranks of APC senators and members of House of Representatives, there is huge aversion to the tactics being deployed to force out duly elected presiding officers of the Assembly.

“Such lawmakers were fully aligned with Nigerians, the PDP and the National Assembly leadership in the protection of the independence, sanctity and integrity of the parliament and all democratic institutions in the country.

“It is therefore instructive for both the Presidency and the APC to know that there is no way they can remove the leadership of the National Assembly, particularly the Senate.”
