However, a condition has to be met: his removal must be by two-thirds majority of the upper chamber.

The Senate President defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in July, sparking calls for his resignation/impeachment by the ruling party.

“The day two-thirds of our members no longer have confidence in us, we will leave this place,” Saraki said as he wound up his speech.

The lawmaker called on the Federal Government to hold accountable agencies and heads of government establishments who go out of line or default on their duties.

He also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the amended electoral act sent to him by the National Assembly.

He denied insinuations that he directed sacked DSS boss, Lawal Daura to invade the senate. He described the allegation as an insult on the sensibilities of Nigerians.
