Bukola Saraki, Nigeria’s Senate President, has said he is not losing sleep over plots and threats by the All Progressives Congress to impeach him.
Saraki stated that those who are drumming for his removal have cascaded to using “cheap blackmail” rather than following the due process as enshrined in the constitution to remove him as Senate President.
The Senate president spoke in Asaba, the Delta State Capital, after a closed-door meeting with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa at Government House on Saturday.
The meeting lasted for over 40 minutes.
Saraki was accompanied by some senators including Dino Melaye and Peter Nwaoboshi, and it was the first time Saraki will be visiting Okowa at the Government House since his defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
He dismisses insinuations that he had decided not to reconvene the National Assembly to consider the budget of the Independent National Electoral Commission owing to the plot to impeach him.
