June 9, 2015 – Bukola Saraki Elected New Senate President Despite Distance From Tinubu

How PDP Senators Elected Saraki In The Absence Of Some APC Members

Despite his little political distance from APC leader Tinubu, Senator Bukola Saraki has been elected as the new President of the 8th National Assembly in Abuja.

On Monday, Saraki led faction of the APC party shunned a peace meeting with Osinbajo.

Many people in the party believed Saraki will soon start his own political party because of his unapologetic gesture towards Ashiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Saraki’s senate presidency divided the leading party into 2 factions today after 51 APC senators who are Tinubu loyalists shunned the election this morning.

Saraki was unanimously selected by 57 PDP and APC senators.

The missing APC senators were in a meeting with Buhari to resolve the National Assembly Crisis when Saraki was declared the President.

PDP Senator Ike Ekweremandu was elected as his deputy.

    Indirectly PDP is still in control of the house and I
    pray it won’t take long time before APC realises dy
    are digging there grave slowly…..but like my amiable
    president ‘National Assembly belongs to everybody
    and belongs to nobody……..’.

    I really feel uncomfortable with Bukola Saraki ; as the new Senate president of Nigeria-hence this political scenario falls nothing short of a case of having an “old wine in new bottle”-it’s NOT in all cases that old wine gets better, rather in this scenario- Saraki moved from PDP to APC for his own selfish interest ,remember the old saying that says; “ one bad egg can spoil a whole crate of good eggs” When the Captain of a ship decides to jump ship when his ship is drowning with its crew members on board – leaves very little to be desired about Bukola Saraki,jumping from PDP to APC. One really needs to look at the antecedents and the achievements of the Sarakis in Ilorin -Kwara state, to be able to adjudge the pedigree of both father and son.Kwara state has not seen any political development for decades –no thanks to the political strongholds of the Saraki dynasty of monopolising and usurping most of the political powers in Kwara state, to their selfish gains. The state’s common wealth should NOT be used by one family has a family enterprise, and that is exactly what the Sarakis have done in Kwara state.
    I don’t see how the Senate presidency of Bukola Saraki ;can move this nation forward, rather it will only truncate and scuttle pertinent future sponsored policy bills that will be sponsored and debated in the National Assembly. Policies that are supposed to move Nigeria forward-especially if those policies are not in Bukola Saraki’s favour.
    Bukola Saraki,is a political prostitute,the APC members ought to be wary of him.

    Oh my God! I can’t believe this guy will be voted in as No 3 man in Nigeria in less than 24 hours. This is wrong and unacceptable. Eventhough Buhari had made his intention known that he belong to everybody doesn’t mean that some people will circumvent the idea quickly draw an unreasonable agenda and installed this guy as a Senate President. This doesn’t add up, something must have gone wrong somewhere. I believe in bi-partisan politics but this one doesn’t make sense. This is s position of Senate Majority leader. The candidate must come from a ruling party i.e APC party. To my understanding Saraki belongs to PDP how come within a very short time he has metamorphosis himself to become a APC member and wrestle himself to No. 3 position. According to the information at hand, only few APC member of house were present and majority were PDP quickly cast their ballot for Saraki. Uhmmmmmmmm…………. I don’t know what to say again. There are some APC members who have risk their lives for this party. How do we justify their effort? how do you want them to feel when their expectation is never met? Let me redirect my question to Saraki, what is it that you are looking for after becoming a Governor and a Senator several times? Does Nigeria owe your family some debt that you are trying to get at all cost? If this is how we are going to run this republic again, we are just putting a square peg in a round hole.
