Afenifere reacts to impeachment move against Saraki, tells APC Senators what to do


The Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere has said Senators on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, should impeach Bukola Saraki as the Senate President.

In a short chat with DAILY POST, the National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin said APC lawmakers should impeach Saraki if they can get the required number of Senators needed.

Odumakin said this while reacting to the alleged move to impeach Saraki, following his defection from APC to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

According to Odumakin, “If APC can form a quorum, they should impeach him, if they can get the number of Senators together, he should be impeached.

“The constitution made it very clear that you can only remove him by two-thirds majority of the house, so if they can rally that number, he should be removed.”
