•Ahmed Lawan and Saraki

Senate Majority Leader, Ahmed Lawan, has assured the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and President Muhammadu Buhari, that the party’s senate caucus will impeach Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, when lawmakers reconvene.

Senator Lawan said this during the APC Presidential Convention, which held at the Eagle Square, in Abuja, at the weekend.

The national convention ratified Buhari’s candidacy as the flag-bearer of the ruling party in the 2019 presidential election.

There, Lawan said, the APC senate caucus intends ‘to force through lots of things.’

He, however, made a passionate appeal to the Presidency and the APC national leadership to intervene in the challenges some of the National Assembly members are facing; to scale the APC primaries in their respective states. He specifically asked for the national leadership’s mediation.

Similarly, Deputy Speaker, Yusuff Lasun, in his remarks during the Presidential Convention, pledged the chambers loyalty to the presidency and the ruling party.

Although he was silent on the fate of Speaker Yakubu Dogara, when the House reconvenes, he, however, explicitly assured of the House’s loyalty to the party.
