Senator Peter Nwaboshi, a PDP senator and the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Niger Delta during an interview with Daily Trust yesterday 30th March, 2016 threatened that the Peoples Democratic Party will take over the Senate presidency from the APC, If Senate President, Bukola Saraki is ousted from office due to ongoing CCT trial.
He described Saraki’s trial as blackmail and that his party would produce the next Senate President if Saraki is forced out of the seat. He said, the PDP caucus in the senate is ready to replicate the current system in the United States of America, where the Republican Party is in charge of the parliament, while the Democrats are in control of the executive.
He said, “I was the first to address the press in Port Harcourt and I told them that Saraki was going to win the Senate Presidency and I gave them my reasons. Eventually, we went there, he won. If, but God forbids, because we don’t see it coming, by chance Saraki is removed; I can tell you that the PDP will produce the next Senate President. We only need three and we have it. The calculation is very clear to me. The calculation is very clear for the PDP. We know what it will take us.
He went further to say that he had earlier predicted that Saraki was going to win Senate Presidency based on his mathematical calculations from factions in the APC. He offered prediction, if eventually Bukola Saraki is ousted out of office that it is even clearer now that PDP will win it. He said, If anybody is thinking that a PDP man is going to vote against a PDP candidate, he is telling you a lie. We have people and we know how to get the people from the APC, We will win.
