APC, Senate caucus consider Lawan, Adamu, Ndume for Saraki’s seat

The All Progressives Congress and its Senate caucus are considering no fewer than three senators to replace the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, Saturday PUNCH has learnt.

The APC, since the defection of Saraki to the Peoples Democratic Party, has been calling for his resignation, threatening that the President of the Senate will be impeached, if he fails to resign.

Besides looking for Saraki’s replacement, it was gathered that the ruling party and its members in the Senate were considering three senators to replace the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.

Those the APC has penciled down for the President of the Senate, according to sources in the APC Caucus, are the Majority Leader, Senator Ahmad Lawan; former chairman of the Northern Senators’ Forum, Senator Abdullahi Adamu; and former Majority Leader, Senator Ali Ndume.
