PDP senators write Saraki over impeachment threat by APC, Oshiomhole

There are indications that forty-nine Senators of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have written to Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to inform him of their vote of confidence in his leadership, and that of his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.

This followed the statement by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole who had on Friday vowed that the party will work for his impeachment “in accordance with the law”.

In response, the 49 Senators jointly declared their support for the duo last Tuesday.
The development followed the siege on the National Assembly.

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, had in a swift reaction, sacked Lawal Daura as the Department of State Services (DSS) Director General, for what the presidency described as unauthorized action.

On Sunday, a source close to one of the lawmakers disclosed that Saraki received the letter of support at the weekend.
He said: “The PDP Senators expressed their support for him and Ekweremadu. They also condemned the invasion of the legislature by law enforcement agencies.

“They stated that any they are against any illegal impeachment and emphasized that the plot by the APC was – in their words – dead on arrival.

“I can also confirm to you that the two Senate leaders also have some support within the APC caucus.”

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said it had “uncovered a fresh plot by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the cabal in the Buhari presidency” to use security agencies and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to invite, arrest and detain Saraki and Ekweremadu.

PDP raised the alarm in a statement on Sunday by his spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan.
