The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Niger Delta, Senator Peter Nwaboshi has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will produce Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s successor if he is removed from office.

Nwaboshi, a member of the PDP and representative of the Delta South Senatorial District, made the declaration during a recent interview, according to Daily Trust.

“I was the first to address the press in Port Harcourt and I told them that Saraki was going to win the Senate Presidency and I gave them my reasons. Eventually, we went there, he won. If, but God forbids, because we don’t see it coming, by chance Saraki is removed; I can tell you that the PDP will produce the next Senate President,” he said.

“We only need three and we have it. The calculation is very clear to me. The calculation is very clear for the PDP. We know what it will take us. When I told them that Saraki was going to win, I did a lot of mathematical calculations based on the facts on the ground and it is even clearer to me now that the PDP will win it. We will win it.

“If anybody is thinking that a PDP man is going to vote against a PDP candidate, he is telling you a lie. We have people and we know how to get the people from the APC. We will win and that will be very interesting. I can tell you with what’s on the ground that we will produce the next Senate President,” he added.

Nwaboshi’s comments were made in relation to Saraki’s ongoing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
