PDP Reps raises alarm on plot to invade Senate

1999 Constitution amendment

The Peoples Democratic Party members of the House of Representatives on Monday have alerted on a plot by  “a small group of senators” with to invade the Senate and to forcefully reconvene it.

The lawmakers also said the plot is to be executed with the conspiracy of sucurity agencies, but warned that the move could lead to breakdown of law and order at the National Assembly if the plotters did not desist.

The caucus gave the warning after the members’ emergency meeting at the National Assembly.

It stated that the plotters would pretend that they wanted the Senate to discuss urgent national issues; the real intention was to remove the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu.

The caucus had last week raised alarm, naming senators Ali Ndume, Abdullahi Adamu and Ovie Omo-Agege, as the masterminds behind the plot, but on Monday they did not mention names but rather branded the plotters “a small group of senators.”
