APC Set To Pick Replacement For Saraki – SEE Who May Likely Emerge

Apart from Senator Akume who is from the North Central zone and Remi Tinubu, no other names were mentioned but sources said other two rank­ing senators also from the South West are being con­sidered on APC shop list.

Feelers from Abuja reaching Kaduna, the sec­ond home of President Mu­hammadu Buhari revealed that, barring any ast min­ute change of plan, Saraki may be asked to resign or if he refused, may be im­peached on moral ground to concentrate on his trial.

National Mirror gath­ered that, Senator Ahmed Lawan who was anointed by APC as its sole candidate but lost to Saraki would emerge senate leader from the North East, since the Speaker is also from the zone.

One of the credible sources explained that, though Saraki and Dogara jettisoned APC’s ,earlier zoning of National Assem­bly principal officers which favoured the north which has both the Senate Presi­dent and Speaker but that under the new power shar­ing deal, South West zone may produce the senate president.


South East and South-South have no APC sena­tors and are already out of the new deal.

Meanwhile, one of the anti -Saraki’s groups, Northern Ethnic Nation­alities Unity Congress, NENUC, had called on the senate president to re­sign or face impeachment over CCT 13 count charges against him.
