Saraki had told reporters in Asaba the Delta State capital on Saturday that he was not bothered about the APC plot against him .

He told journalists , “ You can look at me . I am not losing any sleep about it ( impeachment threat ) . We believe democracy must go by the rule of law .

“ There are processes , constitutional processes over what we do. So , I am not concerned about that .

“ There are lots of noise being made about that but be sure that once we resume , the processes are followed , we will see that the noise will fizzle out . So I am not concerned about it . ”

But the APC speaking through Nabena said , “ Like we ’ ve said it before, he will be removed democratically . Let him reconvene the Senate first since he feels we in the APC don’ t have the numbers required to impeach him .
