Senate President Bukola Saraki assured Nigerians that he would leave his exalted seat if and only if impeached by two-third majority of the red chamber.
Saraki said this on Wednesday while addressing a ‘World press Conference’ on Tuesday’s siege to the National Assembly by the Department of State Services (DSS).
He said he was not desperate to stay in office. ”However, a condition has to be met. My removal must be by two-thirds majority of the upper chamber”, he said.
The Senate President defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in July, sparking calls for his resignation/impeachment by the ruling party.
“The day two-thirds of our members no longer have confidence in us, we will leave this place,” Saraki insisted.
