Some Senators and the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have spoken of their desire to remove Saraki from his position, after he decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Saraki who spoke to newsmen in Asaba after a closed-door meeting with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, also debunked claims that the Senate was yet to reconvene due to fear of his impeachment.

“I am not losing any sleep about impeachment, we have a country that a lot of Nigerians believe there must be rule of law, those who are talking about impeachment are engaging in cheap blackmail and I am not concerned about that,” he said.

Saraki also insisted that no amount of intimidation and security harassment, would prevent the business of law-making that would impact positively on the country, saying that “our ideas and visions on what we expect in a democratic setting were not met in APC, hence we left.”The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Saturday said he is not losing sleep over the plot to impeach him.
