Abu Ibrahim, senator representing Katsina south, has asked Senate President Bukola Saraki to resign immediately.
Speaking with journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, Ibrahim said the defeat Saraki suffered is an indication that he should vacate his position because “there is nothing left for him to cling to”.
Saraki, who is representing Kwara central senatorial district under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), lost to Ibrahim Oloriegbe of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Oloriegbe polled 123,808 votes to defeat the incumbent senator who secured 68,994 votes in the election.
He added that selfishness was Saraki’s “greatest undoing, saying the electorate showed that they were tired of him.
The senator had predicted the loss of Saraki following the defection of the senate president to the major opposition party.
“Some of us predicted that APC will retire Saraki. It has come to pass. It was obvious that Saraki was not going to win the election,” he said.
“Saraki was always for himself. Selfishness does not serve any politician well. That was Saraki’s greatest undoing.
“Kwara people showed clearly that they were tired of Saraki and his antics. His image mostly over bloated has been destroyed completely.
“If I were Saraki I will throw in the towel immediately. He should not wait until the end of the Eight Senate.
“If he refuses to go immediately, he will be a lame duck Senate President because nothing is left for him to cling on.”
