Saraki: I won’t step down except two-thirds of the senate removes me

Senate President Bukola Saraki has given the removal by two-thirds of the upper legislative chamber as condition for relinquishing his position.

Saraki disclosed this on Wednesday while addressing a press conference on the invasion of the national assembly by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).

The security operatives had denied some lawmakers access to the chambers.

Saraking condemned the act, describing it as anti-democratic.

“This is not about us. This is about the rule of law. We will leave the day two-thirds of our members  no longer support us,” he said.
