They also appealed to members of the Red Chamber of the National Assembly to cut short their annual vacation to consider the supplementary budget forwarded by the President for the 2019 elections.

Oshiomhole and the APC senators, led by the Senate Leader, Lawan, who met with President Muhammadu Buhari behind closed-doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, told Saraki to vacate the office because the APC had the majority number of Senators.

They said: “Saraki cannot run to another party with the crown of APC. Nobody in the APC will be surprised about the development, in fact they have stayed little bit longer than we thought. Last week the Kwara State Governor was alluded to have said he was leaving but he didn’t say when. So, we are not surprised at all.

“But these are what I might call temping moments because I had faced similar situations in my state, when people were leaving. But the beauty of democracy is that whether big or small, it is one man one vote, on election day, no difference between a senator, a president, a journalist and any other person.

“In a sense we have to accept that once a couple for any reason or the other find that they are not compatible, the only honourable thing is to go.

“I was happy for one thing that the senate president as a mark of honour accepted that he is leaving not because the new leadership did not make effort, he admitted that not only did I do everything possible along with the Vice President, along with some governors and we had meeting with the President, but he argued that those efforts came too late. But I couldn’t have started acting before I was born.”

  1. In 2015 Aminu Tambuwal was the Leader of Nigeria House of Representative and in that same capacity he defected to APC. While still holding on to his position he went ahead contested and Won the governorship election to Sokoto state. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

  2. Bukola Saraki must relinquish that SP position voluntarily or be forced out by his colleagues that put him there in the first place. He cannot eat his cake and still hope to have it, that’s against natural justice, equity and good conscience!

    • Sir, you forget that it wasn’t actually APC that put him on the seat off Senate President, but, rather PDP and his loyalist who went with him from PDP to APC hence, the constant intimidation from his own party. So the truth is that, if the Senate is to decide, he’ll still be retained. That’s politics
