Assembly wahala: Jonathan’s former aide, Okupe explains the only way APC can remove Saraki

The ex-aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe, has explained how a Senate President can either be impeached or elected, according to the extant laws of the country.

Okupe spoke against the backdrop of heightened plot by APC Senators and the leadership of All Progressives Congress to impeach Dr. Bukola Saraki as Senate President.

The ex-Presidential aide, wrote on his Twitter handle on Tuesday morning, explained that “A new Senate President can be elected once a quorum of the Senate has been formed by a simple majority of the members present. Section 50(1).

“But a sitting Senate President can only be removed by 2/3 of the membership of the whole Senate. Unfortunately this is the law today.
