Some lawmakers under the aegis of Parliamentary Democrats Group (PDG) have said despite appeal from the Presidency, the National Assembly would not reconvene if there are no concrete assurances attempts would will not be made to impeach Senate President, Bukola Saraki or Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.
The group, which stated this in Abuja on Monday via a press statement signed by its spokesman, Timothy Golu (PDP, Plateau), also said meetings are ongoing to consider the request from the Presidency.
Golu said, “there must be assurance that no illegality will be done against our leaders.”
According to him, the leadership of the legislature can only be determined by the lawmakers themselves and not the executive or any political party.
“The legislature is an independent arm of government and nobody can dictate for us. Our presiding officers are doing well and we have no cause to complain.
We advice the Presidency and the ruling APC to allow us decide our fate,” the statement noted.
