Real Reason I Faced Impeachment – Ex-Senate President, Saraki

Former Senate President Bukola Saraki has revealed why the All Progressives Congress, APC, has failed in its bid to oust him.

Saraki, who spoke in Calabar on Tuesday during a consultative meeting with delegates from the People’s Democratic Party and other party members, said he faced impeachment because he insisted the Buhari government shouldn’t borrow 

The former governor of Sakwara Region who came to support the PDP delegates ahead of the May 2022 presidential election has assured the people of Nigeria that he is determined and able to lead the country to a better future if given the opportunity to lead.

He said, “We are inching into a failing state, cost of living has skyrocketed, unemployment is high; we don’t have the luxury to let emotion define who leads us today. We don’t have the luxury of saying I will vote for him because we speak the same language or we practise the same religion, Nigeria needs a president who is a team player.

“I will leave Nigeria a better country than I met it, if given the opportunity to serve. As we speak, Nigeria spends 80 percent of its revenue to service debt; there is no way we can develop as a country with this kind of indices.

“I have held people together before in the Senate, the reason their ploy to remove me failed was because I related very well with my colleagues, people I worked with even in such a hostile environment, I stood my ground; they wanted to borrow, we need a president who can afford to hold everyone together as well as stand his ground on the right policies that will move us forward.”
