Saraki can’t run to PDP with our crown – Oshiomhole, APC Senators

Daily Hint   1/8/2018

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole and the senators elected on the platform of the party, Wednesday, urged the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to resign as Senate President.

They also appealed to members of the Red Chamber of the National Assembly to cut short their annual vacation to consider the supplementary budget forwarded by the President for the 2019 elections.

Oshiomhole and the APC senators, led by the Senate Leader, Lawan, who met with President Muhammadu Buhari behind closed-doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, told Saraki to vacate the office because the APC had the majority number of Senators.

They said: “Saraki cannot run to another party with the crown of APC. Nobody in the APC will be surprised about the development, in fact they have stayed little bit longer than we thought. Last week the Kwara State Governor was alluded to have said he was leaving but he didn’t say when. So, we are not surprised at all.

“But these are what I might call temping moments because I had faced similar situations in my state, when people were leaving. But the beauty of democracy is that whether big or small, it is one man one vote, on election day, no difference between a senator, a president, a journalist and any other person.

“In a sense we have to accept that once a couple for any reason or the other find that they are not compatible, the only honourable thing is to go.

“I was happy for one thing that the senate president as a mark of honour accepted that he is leaving not because the new leadership did not make effort, he admitted that not only did I do everything possible along with the Vice President, along with some governors and we had meeting with the President, but he argued that those efforts came too late. But I couldn’t have started acting before I was born.”
