The All progressives Congress (APC) has said that Bukola Saraki’s fate to continue as Senate President will be determined by Senators.
The National Vice Chairman of the party, Mr Hilliard Eta said this in response to allegations by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) that APC is plotting a forceful change of leadership at the Senate. He maintained that APC will do nothing to mar its prodemocratic reputation. ” We in the APC are progressives,the concept and principle of progressivism is that the ordinary man most be at that epicenter of policies and actions of our government”
“As a party, we are not all senators;We have senators in the Senate. Saraki was elected by senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It is the senators that will decide whether Saraki remains their president or not.
“But I can say this, there are no factions in the APC,we have one National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, nothing has happen to give any clue to factionalism in our party and the constitution is very clear as to the grounds
upon which defections can occur.
“For us as a party, we will defend the law and the constitution of this country. The PDP I am told, would do everything to defend Saraki, we will do everything legitimately to defend the laws of the land and the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria”.
