The Deputy National spokesman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, has called for the expulsion of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki following a gale of defections which has seen 15 Senators, 37 House of Reps members as well as the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, leaving the party.
Nabena who accused Saraki of having a hand in organising the mass defections in the National Assembly insisted that the Senate President is the major sponsor of the Reformed-APC group which pulled out of the ruling party recently.
In a press statement released on Wednesday, July 25, 2018, Nabena said Saraki has been engaging in anti-party activities aimed at destabilizing the APC and that there was no reason or justification for the party to keep the nation’s number three man.
Nabena went further to accuse the Senate President of being the hidden hand behind the 15 Senators who defected from the ruling party to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The statement reads in part:
“The news of the about 15 senators who reportedly defected from our party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), hardly came as a surprise to anyone.
What, however, shocked political observers, especially democratic minds, was Senate President Bukola Saraki’s postures and expressions, which clearly communicated his unhidden complicity in the charades against his supposed party.
Clearly, Saraki had a big hand in organizing the events that transpired in the National Assembly. He has, therefore, lost the moral justification to remain in APC. The time to expel him from the party is now.
The public outing by the deserters at the National Assembly was the culmination of months of anti-party activities organised and directed by Saraki. And every scene in that dramatic work of shame revealed his hand.
We have also previously emphasised the fact that the Senate President is the major sponsor of the so-called Reformed All Progressives Congress (rAPC), which has pulled out of APC, and whose members in the National Assembly staged the exit that we saw today.
Being the ringleader, therefore, there is no justification for APC’s continued toleration of Saraki. He must go.”
