Ruling Lawmakers Shun Chamber As PDP Senators Share Meat Pie
Following an emergency meeting convened by Senate President, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, for officials of the National Assembly, reports say APC Senators has deserted the complex after rumours of their planned impeachment filtered around.
They left their colleagues in the PDP who are keeping vigil at the Senate, to share meat pie with one another.
Unconfirmed reports say the Senators under the platform of the APC had, with the backing of their chairman Adams Oshiomhole, perfected plans to impeach Saraki even without the needed number required by law.
Elanza News reports that some of the lawmakers under the platform of the APC, met with their chairman, Adams Oshiohmole at Transcorp Hilton Abuja but their plans could not scale through.
It was gathered that as at 12 30pm, all NASS offices were still locked up with only PDP senators seen sharing meat pie.
“This is our IDP Camp,” a Senator said, jokingly referring to the siege at the National Assembly that makes them to forced their way in.
A Senate correspondent said with the hullabaloo and the political brouhaha, the National Assembly’s joint leadership meeting may not hold.
“The Senate is already divided,” the reporter said while narrating how offices are still under locks and keys.
“No APC Senator is seen around here for now. Rumours of their meeting elsewhere rents the air,” he added.
