"We Are Back, Saraki Must Leave That Senate President Seat" - Senator Loyal To Buhari

Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, APC Delta Central, insisted  yesterday that Senate President Bukola Saraki should be ready to vacate office immediately.

Omo-Agege told NAN in Abuja that Saraki, who on July 31, defected from the APC to the PDP, lacks the moral right to continue leading the Senate.

The tough talking senator added that;
“Our demand has not changed, in fact, that demand has been accentuated by the directive of the APC national leadership.

“We have all been enjoined as APC senators at a slightest opportunity to remove Saraki and once we are provided with that slightest opportunity, we will remove him and he knows that.

“Absolutely, he knows he cannot be; we are not shying away from that. Our position has always been consistent.

“This is not new neither is it news. We have made that clear, very clearly in the past.

“Therefore, the position of Ovie Omo-Agege has the position of APC as a party.”

On whether the members, who were aggrieved by the outcome of the primaries at various states might affect their plan, the senator said: “Well, that is something that we will need to address when we return on Tuesday (today).

“We will take an audit of where we are in terms of the numbers, in terms of those who are happy and those who are not happy.

“But you should understand one thing, just as you have people who are disgruntled in APC, you also have others who are disgruntled in PDP.”

When asked if the aggrieved group had the number to remove Saraki, Omo-Agege said: "Of course, we have always had the number. We have the number.”

He said as soon as the APC lawmakers in the red chamber have the number, the deed would be done.
