Senate president Saraki Gives Condition On Resigning As Senate President

Senate President Bukola Saraki has said that he is not desperate to stay in office. However, a condition has to be met before he leaves, his removal must be by two-thirds majority of the upper 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).

The Senate President defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in July, thereby sparking calls for his resignation by the ruling party.

“The day two-thirds of our members no longer have confidence in us, we will leave this place,” Saraki said as he wound up his speech.
