Saraki Denies Decamping To PDP
Senate President Bukola Saraki has denied dumping the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
There have been strong speculations that the number three citizen had returned to the PDP, following his attendance of a meeting convened by the Senate caucus of the party.
But the former governor of Kwara State has quickly moved to squash the speculations.
In a statement issued today by his Special Assistant, New Media, Bamikole Omishore, the Senate President said he remains committed to the party he helped to bring to power in the 2015 general elections, adding that he only attended the PDP senators’ meeting in his capacity as the leader of the National Assembly and just for 30 minutes.
“The Senate President would like to assure every Nigerian that he is committed to the APC-led government and appreciates the confidence reposed in him and the APC during the 2015 General Elections,” the statement read.
