The Senate President, who was accompanied by some senators including Dino Melaye and Peter Nwaoboshi, said after a closed-door meeting that lasted 40 minutes that certain unnamed persons have resorted to employing "cheap blackmail" strategies.
He stated that majority of Nigerians believe in the rule of law and as such, he is not bothered by any sinister attempt to illegal attempt to remove him from his office.
Senator Saraki said, “I am not losing any sleep about impeachment. We have a country that a lot of Nigerians believed there must be rule of law and those who are talking about impeachment are engaging in cheap blackmail. I am not concerned about that.”
He also rejected allegations that he had decided not to reconvene the National Assembly due to the plot to impeach him.
The meeting also had in attendance Sheriff Oborevwori, Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, and Kingsley Esiso, the state chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
