When and How APC Will Finally Remove Ekweremadu

SENATORS of the Unity Forum, the group loyal to Senator Ahmad Lawan and the All Progressives Congress (APC), are said to have perfected a plot aimed at eventually ousting the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu. The APC had been uncomfortable with Ekweremadu’s emergence on June 9 as Deputy Senate President and had blamed its members in the Senate for allegedly selling out to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
 President Muhammadu Buhari, at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of his party two weeks ago, insisted that he could not work with “enemies,” apparently referring to Ekweremadu occupying the Senate number two seat. Members of the Unity Forum were said to have been further empowered after a recent visit to Aso Rock, where it was gathered that the plot to eventually oust Ekweremadu was discussed. Sources close to the APC in Abuja, on Sunday, said the senators had decided to lie low on their opposition to the Deputy Senate President and to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
 It was gathered that senators of the Unity Forum believed that the issue of leadership positions was almost settled in the Senate, with Saraki’s decision to resort to zonal caucuses rather than uphold the letter written to him by the APC. Three of the leadership positions had been filled, while senators from the South-West zone were said to have met and agreed to recommend one of them to Saraki for appointment as majority chief whip. With attention shifting to committee positions in the Senate, it would be seen that loyalists of the Unity Group might just lose out of the search for presiding officer positions.
