Itse Sagay : PACAC chairman slams Senate for threatening Presidency

President of the Senate Bukola Saraki with Acting President Prof.

The Nigerian senate on Tuesday saw some mild drama following attempts to declare Bukola Saraki as the acting president of Nigeria.

According to the disturbing allegations, the Senate President has planned with oil marketers to stop supplying oil in order to create oil scarcity that will destabilize the government under Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.

The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo is presently facing a fiery opposition with the Nigerian Senate even as the Red Chamber portrays a strong indication for his impeachment.

The senators had earlier turned down Osinbajo's letter seeking the confirmation of Lanre Gbajabiamila, as the Director General of National Lottery Regulatory Commission.

Booth committees would be formed in all the 36,000 polling booths of the state "in a time-bound manner" to strengthen the party base at the grassroot-level.

The senate has resolved to suspend the consideration of all the nominees which the executive sends to it for confirmation.

The chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) Chairman, Prof Itse Sagay, warned the Senate to be prepared for the consequences of bringing down the government.

While strongly condemning Osinbajo for the comment, the lawmakers successively asked that an embargo should be placed on confirmation of executive appointments pending the time the powers of the legislature had been recognised.

"That the Senate suspends all issues relating to confirmation of nominees from the executive until all issues of confirmation as contained in the constitution and laws of the Federation are adhered to". The constitution empowers the president to appoint the chairman of EFCC and other such agencies directly.

He was reportedly speaking about the refusal of the Senate to confirm Ibrahim Magu as chairman of the EFCC.
