The national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, has asked the lawmakers of the ruling party to remove the Senate President.

Oshiomhole said, Saraki will not be the first to be impeached and I doubt if he is going to be the last but definitely he will be impeached according to law and according to the democratic norms.

“The only way Saraki can avoid impeachment is for him to do what is honourable by stepping down”.

On Monday, Ovie Omo-Agege, an APC senator from Delta state, had said the nation’s number three citizen would be removed at the slightest opportunity.

His utterance on the eve of the resumption of the parliament after more than two months had given the impression that the lawmakers were in for a stormy session.

A source said the lawmakers eventually to allow peace reign despite the utterance about the defection of the Senate president.

“The senators have seen that the APC is not even fair to them. Frank discussions about the future of the eighth Senate as it goes into its last stage held at the closed-door session,” the source said.

“They agreed that nothing would distract them till the end of their tenure”.
