Isah Misau, senator representing Bauchi central, says a minister is spearheading a move to remove Bukola Saraki as Senate President.

Misau said this on the floor of the senate on Wednesday while contributing to a motion sponsored by Shuaibu Lau, senator representing Taraba south, on herdsmen attacks in his state.

The Bauchi senator said the unnamed persons are plotting to remove the senate president because of his alleged plan to defect from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He wondered why issues in the country had to be tied to religion and tribe.

“When we were on holiday, so many people were going behind that they should try and remove the senate president. During this holiday, a minister that was spearheading that thing,” Misau said.

“What is the reason, they said that the senate president would leave APC that they should create problems from him (Saraki). What kind of country is this? Everything is about religion, about tribe.

“It is high time for us to do. If it’s about talking here or holding conferences, it would not solve this problem (of security challenges). We should look at security, who and who are holding offices, are they appointed by merit?

“So many appointments in this government are not on merit. Some people have taken over the government as if they are even above the president. We say we are fighting corruption. Babachir Lawal that the vice-president’s committee indicted… why can’t they take him to court and all of us are here keeping quiet. People who have not done anything are always in court.

“This attorney-general is becoming a nuisance, going to court to stop Maina (probe) and we are still here.”
