Saraki Should Quit as Senate President With Decency —Sagay
The Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof Itse Sagay (SAN), has urged the Senate President Bukola Saraki to quit his post with decency.
According to him, it will require a two-thirds majority of available Senators to unseat Saraki.
The senior advocate stated that it’s against the law that a minority party as the President of the Senate was an aberration anywhere in the world.
On whether Saraki was bound to resign, Sagay said: “He should relinquish his position as a matter of honor. He’s not compelled by law to do so. He needs to be removed by a two-thirds majority.
“He got there because he was in APC, even though he got there by subterfuge, which is typical of him. He got there in a cheeky, fraudulent manner.
“Nevertheless, for him to be removed, they need two-thirds, not of the Senate, but of those present and voting at a meeting.
“It doesn’t have to be everybody. It’s those who happen to be there. Once they meet the quorum of one-third, and he is there, he can be removed by two-thirds of that one-third.”
