Senators on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have taken to sleeping in shifts at the National Assembly complex to prevent any sinister plans by Senators of the All Progressives’ Congress (APC) to impeach Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
Senator Philip Gyunka (Nasarawa North – PDP) disclosed that PDP Senators are keeping vigil at the National Assembly complex to prevent anti-Saraki senators from using the cover of darkness to impeach him.
According to a report by The Nation, Gyunka said PDP senators are rotating shifts and keeping watch to make Saraki’s removal impossible.
He said, “I woke up this morning from my night shift and I will still be going back to my night shift. That is to say we are keeping vigil.
“We are rotating the shift among ourselves. As regards what they are saying about impeachment, it is not possible because the international community is aware of their plot.
“Don’t be discouraged. They will intimidate you as they do to us. Like myself, I don’t know how many times they have been calling me. We didn’t know they have come to truncate democracy. But the Senate president, being a product of PDP, has come to the rescue of the the situation.
“We are keeping watch on their plans. If they want the Senate President removed, which is impossible they must have two third majorities. They have been attempting and failing.
“I know they will still make attempts but they will not succeed because I know Nigerians will not allow them to make mockery of the nation’s democracy.”
