Nigeria's Senate president, Bukola Saraki on Saturday, August 25, declared that he was not losing sleep over the plot to impeach him by the All Progressives Congress (APC) following his defection from the ruling party.
The senate president disclosed this to newsmen in Asaba after a closed door meeting with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
Saraki also claimed that it was a lie that the Senate did reconvene due to fear of his impeachment.
“I am not losing any sleep about impeachment, we have a country that a lot of Nigerians believe there must be rule of law, those who are talking about impeachment are engaging in cheap blackmail and I am not concerned about that.”
Going further, Saraki insisted that no amount of political intimidation and security harassment would prevent the business of law-making.
Speaking on why he left the All Progressives Congress, the Senate president said that: “Our ideas and visions on what we expect in a democratic setting were not met in APC, hence we left."
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that Senator Bukola Saraki and Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta state met in a closed-door meeting at the government house in Asaba.
The Senate president who was said to have arrived unannounced was received by the governor and the state chairman of the PDP, Olorogun Kingsley Esiso.
