Senators elected on the platform of the All Progressive Congress, APC, and those who defected to the ruling party have alerted Nigerians to alleged plot by their Peoples Democratic Party, PDP counterparts to embarrass President Muhammadu Buhari.
Punch reported that it gathered from two APC senators that Senate President Bukola Saraki is making subterranean move to secretly reconvene the Senate on Tuesday, expecting that the PDP senators will dominate the sitting during which a vote-of-no-confidence would be passed on Buhari.
“They know that Tuesday is resumption and the APC presidential primary, where Buhari is expected to emerge as the candidate, will also hold that day. They are also aware that many of us will like to witness the occasion.
“They did not want the news of Buhari’s emergence as the sole candidate to dominate the media space that day; so, they want the vote-of-no-confidence story to spoil the show for our party,” the paper quoted an APC senator from the North west as saying.
