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.”
