Sen. Dino Melaye representing Kogi West district is confident that nobody can impeach the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki.
The lawmaker stated this yesterday when he appeared on Channels TV on Sunday Politics.
SENATOR DINO MELAYE’S STATEMENT ON SARAKI IMPEACHMENT:
” Senate President Bukola Saraki will be there for four years; Dino Melaye emphasised, “I want to assure you that they can’t and will never have the number to remove the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.”
Senator Dino, also statted during his moment with Channel’s TV, that the lawmakers in Upper Chamber, of the NASS, would fight against any attempt to unseat the Senate President through “crooked means”.
NOBODY CAN IMPEACH THE SENATE PRESIDENT SAYS DINO MELAYE:
He made the assertion days after the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Adams Oshiomhole, called for the impeachment of the Senate President.
The lawmaker faulted the APC National Chairman for making such statement, describing the call for Saraki’s resignation as a mere noise making.
He explained that the seat of the President of the Senate was not one that can be passed from one person to another, while due procedures must be followed to unseat the occupant.
Melaye said, “Unfortunately, Adams Oshiomhole as an individual has no vote either to keep Saraki or him impeached from office.
SENATOR DINO MELAYE ADDRESSES ADAMS OSHIOMHOLE:
” When he said that it’s a crown, and the crown belongs to APC; I want to educate and also inform him that the Senate Presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is not a title.”
“It is not hereditary; you don’t beget it. It is for the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It does not belong to a political party, and it does not belong to a family, it is not a kingship or an emperor type of thing.”
