Vacate The Senate Presidency Immediately, Abu Ibrahim Tells Saraki

Chairman, Senate Committee on Labour and Productivity, Senator Abu Ibrahim, on Tuesday said the humiliating defeat Senate President Bukola Saraki suffered in the Saturday Presidential and National Assembly elections was an indication that he should vacate the Senate Presidency immediately.
Ibrahim, who represents Katsina South in the Upper Chamber, told reporters in Abuja that Saraki should vacate the Senate Presidency seat immediately to save the little good will left for him.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain also declared the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) completely dead in Katsina State.
He said if Saraki failed to heed the damning defeat handed him by his people to vacate the seat of the Senate President, he would be a lame duck head “because his over bloated image has been completely destroyed.”
He said the prediction that APC would retire Saraki from politics has become a reality.
Ibrahim said the greatest undoing of Saraki in Kwara State politics was self- centeredness.
According to him: “Some of us predicted that APC will retire Saraki. It has come to pass. It was obvious that Saraki was not going to win the election.
“Saraki was always for himself. Selfishness does not serve any politician well. That was Saraki’s greatest undoing.
“Kwara people showed clearly that they were tired of Saraki and his antics. His image mostly over bloated has been destroyed completely.
“If I were Saraki I will throw in the towel immediately. He should not wait until the end of the Eight Senate.
“If he refuses to go immediately, he will be a lame duck Senate President because nothing is left for him to cling on.”
Asked why the APC failed to stop Saraki’s loyalist, Senator Dino Melaye from returning to the Senate, Ibrahim said since the party had dealt with the root, the branches were not important.
