Saraki: APC Senators Are Ignorant Of Constitution – Says Makarfi

A presidential aspirant and former

National Caretaker Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has declared that it will be impossible for the All Progressives Congress senators to impeach the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki.

He stated this on Friday while meeting with the leadership of the PDP in Ondo State at the party secretariat in Akure.

Makarfi said those clamouring for Saraki’s removal lacked the understanding of the constitution regarding the affairs of the National Assembly, insisting that only two-thirds majority of the Senate could impeach the Senate President.

According to him, the defection of the Senate President to the PDP does not prevent him from holding his office, as the constitution does not indicate that the Senate President must come from the ruling party.

He said, “I will refer the APC senators to the constitution for better understanding of the laws of our country.

“I am not surprised with their actions; it shows their ignorance about the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, because the constitution is clear about that. If they are familiar with the constitution they will know that they lack the legal powers to impeach the Senate President.

“I am sure they cannot have the two-thirds majority which the constitution requires for the impeachment of the Senate President. Our members in the senate are intelligent people who will not give lawlessness a place in the senate.”

On the defection of some APC bigwigs into the party, the former governor of Kaduna State said although the development might pose some challenges to the party, the PDP leadership had its ways of resolving its internal crisis.
