Saraki: APC senators are ignorant of constitution, says Makarfi (Punch)

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.
