@OfficialAPCNg antidemocratic Senators loyal to @MBuhari are RIGHT NOW in 5 buses headed to 13 Aso Drive, which is the home of the APC Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, to perfect the impeachment of @bukolasaraki. Newsmen, go there NOW #FrustrateBuhariDictatorship

@HouseNGR, Yusuf Lasun, has joined pro democratic Senators keeping vigil at the @NGRSenate. We just learnt that because of the alert we gave, @OfficialAPCNg Senators loyal to Buhari have left Sheraton for APC’s Secretariat. Newsmen, go there!
They are at Sheraton Abuja forcefully collecting signatures. One particular APC Senator from the Northwest, who is very poetic, actually wants to defect, but he can’t defect because they gave him money and unknown to him they filmed it. Senators who are collecting money, beware!
