Reports reaching us indicate that Senators who are members of the Senate Unity Forum (SUF) have began lobbying Saraki loyalists in their bid towards setting the grounds to impeach the current Senate President.
According to Saturday Punch, the SUF members, who contacted the pro-Saraki senators, hinged their argument on the ongoing trial of the Senate President at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
It was gathered that the group might have succeeded in securing the support of 12 pro-Saraki senators, who are also Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members.
Investigations revealed that the anti-Saraki group sought the support of the senate president’s loyalists because it had become obvious that Senator Saraki could not be removed without the support of some senators that were sympathetic to him.
At the inauguration of the Senate on June 6, 57 out of 109 senators were reported to have voted for Saraki.
Attempts to speak with Senators Dino Melaye, Eyinnaya Abaribe, Hope Uzodinma, James Manager, Mao Ohuabunwa, Ali Ndume, and Bala Ibn Na’Allah, to get their views on the development failed as none of them could be reached.
