The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan is said to be sitting on defection letters of nothing less than 12 Senators of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC who had expressed their willingness to dump the ruling party for other parties to prevent an impeachment against his presidency of the Senate.

Precious Eze’s Blog” reports that already the numerical strength of the ruling APC in the Senate otherwise known as the Red Chamber has reduced from sixty-four (64) to sixty-two (62) in the upper chamber, with the PDP, rising to 41 from 38, with the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP having two, the Young Progressives Party and All Progressives Grand Alliance having one each.

Reports say that if the defection letters of the 12 APC Senators are read on the floor of the Nigerian Senate, the numerical strength of the ruling party will be reduced to 50 senators, which will eventually threaten Lawan’s seat as the Senate President.

Among the senators who the Senate president is sitting upon his defection notice is Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa, who submitted his defection letter to the Senate President Lawan.

The senators elected on the platform of the opposition parties had on Wednesday demanded the impeachment of Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari over the country’s worsening security situation.

It was learned that some opposition senators were considering removing the Senate president if he stood against the impeachment process of President Buhari over the worsening security situation in Nigeria.
