A former Minority Leader in the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, has said he is not aware of any impeachment plans against Senate President Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
Akpabio, who defected from the opposition PDP to the ruling APC last week, said nobody briefed him on any such moves.
The former Akwa Ibom State governor also said he was not aware of the insinuations about declaring his seat vacant, following his defection.
A national daily had on Sunday reported that Saraki might declare Akpabio’s seat vacant since there was no division in the PDP.
But Akpabio said even those that defected to the PDP should also be accused of leaving the APC without any genuine reason as there was no division in the party.
“The APC is one family. If you hear about rAPC that was not really a political party, that was not a division, and has even been consumed in what they call Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP).
“So, there is no division in APC as they are saying there is no division in PDP, and so, any defection from APC to PDP should also attract the treatment of declaration of seats vacant,” he said.
