I remain a committed APC member – Saraki
Senate President Bukola Saraki has responded to a newspaper report which claimed that he was working working closely with the APC leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to sabotage President Muhammadu Buhari.
A statement by his media aide, Yusuph Olaniyonu, said there was no basis for such alleagation.
“Most Nigerians are aware that there has been no meeting or communication between me and Asiwaju Tinubu since I was elected Senate President. Therefore, I do not see any basis for a newspaper to report that we are both plotting to oppose the President.
“I recognise Tinubu as one of the leaders of the APC who contributed so much to the victory of the party in the last election. Some other people also contributed and I believe the collective efforts made it possible for the first time in the history of our party for an opposition party to win the general elections,
“Let me state clearly that I remain a committed member of the APC and will do all in my power to ensure the party fulfill its promises to bring positive changes into the country.
“Since my election as Senate President, my focus and efforts have been devoted to doing the job that I was elected to do by my constituents and my colleagues in the Senate. Twice, my colleagues have confirmed their support for me as the primus inter pares in the Senate,” he said.
