PDP Senators Set To Sabotage Buhari’s Ministers #Beekhaybee

Following the appearance of Senate president
Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal
over alleged false declaration of assets some of
his supporters and senators from the Peoples
Democratic Party are planning to fight back.
They are reportedly working on a plot which will
lead to the election of a new Senate president
from the opposition party, should Saraki be
imprisoned.
Security agencies already know about the plot, it
was learnt.
Moreover, there were indications yesterday that
senators loyal to Saraki may have “laid an
ambush” for President Muhammadu Buhari’s
ministerial list, which is being awaited at the
Senate “any moment from now”.

They may discard the all Buhari’s appointments
made so far by the leader of the nation in protest
against Saraki’s trial, a source said.
But the presidency is unperturbed.
A source, who does not want to be named, said
last night: “Some loyalists of Saraki and PDP
senators have been meeting on the options
available and how to tackle President
Muhammadu Buhari.
“At the meeting in Abuja, they resolved to stand
by Saraki but if he is convicted, they will make
sure that the next president of the Senate is from
the PDP.
“They are really aggrieved and have vowed to
stop the candidate of the Unity Forum, Sen.
Ahmed Lawan, from emerging as Saraki’s
successor.
“From the way PDP and its senators are rallying
around Saraki, no one needs a soothsayer to
know that a bigger conspiracy is in the offing.
“The PDP has not come to terms with the fact
that it lost the last general elections.”

The source added: “They know that the
Ppresident will not present imposed candidates as
ministerial nominees and they are out for a pound
of flesh as from September 29 because the Code
of Conduct Bureau( CCB) dragged the President of
the Senate to the Code of Conduct Tribunal
(CCT)”
However, the security agencies have reportedly
crashed the plan.
A government source said: “The whole plot is
aimed at frustrating the president and cause a
political crisis in the country.
“They have this feeling that they must pull down
the house due to the arraignment of Saraki by
CCT. In spite of denial, they are pointing accusing
fingers at the presidency for Saraki’s travails.”
President Buhari, who recently assured Nigerians
that ministers will be announced till September
30, will leave Nigeria for New York today
