Saraki can’t be impeached via Gestapo approach – Baraje tells Oshiomhole



The leader of the Reformed All Progressives Congress, Alhaji Kawu Baraje , has said that the Senate President , Dr Bukola Saraki, cannot be impeached by Gestapo approach .He said it was an insult on Nigerians for the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress , Adams Oshiomhole , to be making an emphatic statement that Saraki would be impeached .

He spoke to journalists in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, on Thursday , during the graduation ceremony at Baraje Centre for Arabic and Islamic Studies .

Baraje said , “ The Constitution makes me to understand that only the senators can elect or impeach their president .

“ Somebody will just say because he is the chairman of the party , tomorrow , we are going to impeach the Senate President . Some of us have experiences of leading parties . Issues like that had come up and we knew how we handled it . ”

He added , “ It needs a lot of maturity and education and cool – headedness . It is not by Gestapo approach . In any case , the senators , through their body language , are saying that as far as they are concerned, they are not ready to impeach their president . ”

Baraje also said he had defected from the APC to the Peoples Democratic Party.
