APC Queries Saraki, Gives Him 48 Hours To Respond
The All Progressives Congress has queried Senate President Bukola Saraki and given him 48 hours to explain why disciplinary action should not be taken against him for violating the party’s constitution.
In a resolution signed by its National Secretary, Mai Maila Buni, the APC accused Dr Saraki of breaching Article 21 of its constitution and engaging in anti-party activities.
Among several other allegations, the APC claimed that the Senate President “encouraged and facilitated by providing an enabling environment for the defection of some senators who are members of the APC to the other opposition parties”.
It also claimed that Dr Saraki “deliberately refused to screen nominees for appointments submitted by Mr President who are members of the party”.
“This has caused untold embarrassment and ridicule to the party and the government,” it said.
