Akanbi said this in an interview with Sunday PUNCH against the backdrop the allegation that Saraki and Ekweremadu were slated for impeachment last week Tuesday
The representative of Oyo South Senatorial District, Senator Soji Akanbi, has said it was no longer feasible to impeach the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki; and his Deputy, Dr. Ike Ekweremadu.
Akanbi said this in an interview with Sunday PUNCH against the backdrop the allegation that Saraki and Ekweremadu were slated for impeachment last week Tuesday.
The senator, who also spoke on his perceived frosty relationship with the Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, said when asked of the development last week: “That was a rumour.
“Right now, it does not seem feasible.”
When he was asked why he took that position, Akanbi replied: “The numbers are now close.
“We now have 53 against 49.
“That is not enough to sack anybody.
“Two-thirds will be needed to remove the leadership the and neither APC nor the PDP has the numbers.
“But with simple majority, whatever comes from the executive can scale through.”
Akanbi also spoke on the news making the rounds that Governor Ajimobi was planning to take his seat in the Senate from 2019 and other developments in the Red Chamber.
