A senator representing Kaduna central district in the 8th Assembly, Senator Shehu Sani, has on Monday, hinted that the crisis in the national assembly could have been worsen if the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki did not begin immediate reconciliation process.

Senator Sani stated this during his familiarisation visit to the correspondent Chapel of Nigerian Union of Journalists, Kaduna, in the company of other All Progressives Congress (APC) loyalists in the state.

According to him, “About the issue of the deputy senate president, there is no impeachment on the table. The collect resolve is to accept in 'quote' the unfortunate reality of the situation and see how we can work and operate through it. What we want to avoid is unnecessary overheating the senate that will be destructive to the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Now, reconciliation process between the unity party and the other party and see how senator Lawal’s camp can be accommodated within the new arrangement. The first step is to accepting that we have gotten ourselves to a corner and how we will live at that corner to see what is of interest to all of us.

“So, the party has not put forward the concept of impeachment of PDP lawmakers who are in leadership position.

“So, it is now how we can work through the landmine and how we can also be able to live with the reality to which we unfortunately found ourselves.

“In every crisis there is a first time, this suppose to be a taste of leadership and our test of political skill in terms of been able to navigate the turbulence situation we found ourselves.

“We did not envisaged that it will happen. The divided house negates the PDP. It could have been worse even with Saraki as senate president because PDP has the power on the floor to pick because of the division within the APC. There was even magnanimity on their side to pick the senate deputy president. There was timely intervention by Saraki himself to ensure that we don’t lose all.

“But to be very candid, we are pained by the situation we found ourselves because our people voted for change which is why they queue up day and night and they wanted APC to lead that change; to lead the change in the executive and to lead the change in the legislatives. But there was a problem of lack of reconciliation within ourselves and that led to a crack that make PDP to take such advantages.

“I can tell you, if Saraki is absent and Ekwerenmadu was there, Ekwerenmadu should know that it is still the APC that have majority in the house and every vote of the majority that count, even if he emerge as acting senate president, he cannot make do what we don’t want to do as a party,” he narrated.
