Defection not sufficient grounds to remove Saraki —Falana
Written by NobleAdmin on August 6, 2018
Femi Falana, in a statement he issued on Sunday, said, “The planned removal of the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, by the APC should be stopped as it cannot stand.
“The attention of APC legislators ought to be drawn to section 52 of the Constitution which provides that the President and Deputy Senate President can only be removed by the resolution supported by the votes of not less two-thirds majority of the entirety of the members of the Senate.
“Since the APC legislators cannot muster the required two-thirds majority of the votes of the entire members, the plan to impeach Senator Saraki should be dropped forthwith.”
