Sabi Abdullahi, spokesman of the upper legislative chamber, says nobody can remove Senate President Bukola Saraki from office.

Isah Misau, senator representing Bauchi central, had raised alarm over a plot to remove Saraki from office.

He said the plan was spearheaded by an unnamed minister.

But speaking with journalists at the weekend, Abdullahi said the senators had chosen their leader and they were not ready to remove him.


He said Saraki has brought stability not only to the national assembly but the country.

“Nobody can remove Saraki. We elected him and we are not ready to remove him yet. From day one, they never wanted Saraki,” Abdullahi said.

“What we are saying is that the right to choose the senate president lies with senators and we have chosen our leader.
From everything he has been doing as chairman of the national assembly and as president of the senate, he has provided stability.


“He has not only brought this to the national assembly, but the entire country. The true face of democracy is the parliament and since Saraki came in, we have not failed this democracy.”

He also said the conference committee set up to harmonise electoral act would work to deepen the electoral process in the country.

“I believe they will work together to make sure that we have an agreeable component that the Nigerian people will be happy that we are deepening the electoral process,” the spokesman said.
