2019:Presidency In Fresh Plot To Unseat Saraki, Contracts 4 Powerful Senators, Northern Gov, Minister To Do 'The Dirty Job'

By Dansu Peter


The Presidency has not backed down on its resolve to unseat the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki in a bid to thwart his 2019 Presidential ambition

According to New Telegraph, indications emerged yesterday that the Presidency, in collusion with some lawmakers in the upper chamber of the National Assembly, has hatched a fresh plan to impeach the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, as a final onslaught to cripple his political career ahead of the 2019 polls.

The plot, which is said to have reached an advanced stage, is coming to light one week after Senator Isah Hamman Misau alleged at plenary that a cabinet minister was leading a squad of politicians within and outside the parliament to impeach Saraki. Although Misau did not name the minister involved, his open testimony on the issue raised a red flag. New Telegraph gathered that the said minister, who hails from the South-South, was given the task because of his closeness to President Muhammadu Buhari and had a good working relationship with him (Buhari).

Also fingered in the plot is a serving governor from North-West and a close ally of President Buhari, who once held a public office during the Olusegun Obasanjo’s regime.

The conspirators were said to have been meeting at the Presidential Villa alongside four serving senators from the North who are believed to be against the presumed presidential ambition of Saraki in 2019. Apart from Saraki, four other senators loyal to him are also being targeted by the conspirators.

It was also learnt that some of the lawmakers, who have been contacted to execute the plot, have shown reluctance to carry out the assignment because of fears that any impeachment at this time could throw the parliament into disarray.

Others who were conscripted argued that Misau was right to be angry with the Presidency over his trial by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), following his face-off with the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr. Ibrahim Idris. It was gathered that Saraki is already aware of the moves, but was bidding his time before responding to the planned coup.

The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has set February 6 to commence the re-trial of the Senate President over alleged false assets declaration
