Saraki Betrayed His Father & Sister Many Times, He Is A Mean Man With Selfish Interest – APC
Saraki No Longer Qualifies As Senate President…Party With Majority Members Head The Senate All Around The World – APC
The Senate President has been put under intense pressure to vacate his seat as he is no longer qualified to be called the Senate President again after defecting to the opposition party.
The ruling party, (APC) from which he defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) delivered a blistering attack on him.
Legal expert Prof. Itse Sagay said he should go – as a matter of honour. Some youths in the North marched on the party’s secretariat in Kaduna, demanding Saraki’s resignation.
The APC said in a statement by National Publicity Secretary Yekini Nabena that the Senate President had been surrounded by controversies since “hijacking” the position in 2015, adding that the Senate must remove him.
Nabena said all over the world, the leadership of the legislature is provided by the political party with majority members, pointing out that Saraki capitalised on the absence of many members of the APC to connive and conspire with members of the opposition PDP to become Senate President, trading off the Deputy Senate President to the PDP.
Describing Saraki’s action as “political betrayal” and “treachery”, which even the devil would be envious of, Nabena said even after defecting to the opposition PDP, and with APC still in the majority in the Senate, Saraki still has the impudence to present himself as the Senate President.
The statement reads: “In every democratic country, the position of the Senate President is one of the highest political offices one can attain. It is a position reserved for the best of the best, experienced and exemplary politicians who by their character and conduct in public offices, the younger generation look up to as role models.
“In terms of exemplary personage, the reverse is the case in respect of the current Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, who has been a dismal failure and has been involved in one controversy or the other – budget padding, filibustering, legislative rascality, sabotage of matters of national interest, among other criminalities too numerous to mention.
“Having suffered under the 16-year misrule of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Saraki will go down in our country’s history as the worst Senate President Nigeria has had the misfortune to have.
“Since his usurpation of the coveted seat, achieved through a wicked conspiracy with members of the opposition PDP, it has been from one controversy to another – the Code of Conduct trial for false declaration of assets and conspiracy with his deputy to fraudulently alter the rules of the Senate.
“All over the world, the leadership of the legislature is provided by the political party with majority members. But Dr. Saraki would in the absence of many members of his former party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), connive and conspire with members of the opposition PDP to emerge Senate President, and in the process trade off the Deputy Senate President position to the opposition PDP – a political betrayal and treachery even the devil would be envious of.
“Even at this time, he has defected to the opposition PDP, and with APC still in the majority in the Senate, Dr. Saraki still has the impudence to present himself as the Senate President. Political ambition should be made of nobler stuff.
“The Senate must do everything possible to put Dr. Saraki where he rightly belongs – the back seat. He is definitely not a fit and proper person to preside over the country’s upper and revered legislative house.
“A man who betrayed his father, sister (many times), his party PDP in 2014, the APC in 2015 by conspiring with opposition PDP senators to emerge Senate President, APC administration by sabotaging the executive and defecting to the PDP in 2018 has no character, principles, values and integrity.
“His only interest is Bukola Saraki, Bukola Saraki and Bukola Saraki. The question is not IF he will defect again from PDP if Bukola Saraki’s interest is not served, but WHEN he will do so. Such mean men are not interested in the Nigeria of our dreams.”

What has Saraki betrayed his father and sister need to do with Nigeria citizen?
APC is full of propaganda and complaint. They have been so busy with complaint since they assumed office that they don’t have time to focus on good governance.

ACCORDING To the report above:- Dr. Saraki will go down in our country‘s history as the worst senate president Nigeria has had the misfortune to have.
Now, please read my own version:-
Buhari is not just a lesson to Nigerians but that the sound of his name alone will continue to dirt the history of Nigeria that even posterity will come to know about him as a man who was the worst CURSE to have befallen the country and her citizens.

Who told you if your parent curse you it shall not come to pass? Saraki has been cursed by his own father before he died but he ignored it. Let us have the blessing of our parents before they depart this world. Again as I’ve said before these people are only playing politics of self interest. A medical Doctor who cannot practice his profession order than to steal nation’s fund and destabilize his own country. Saraki your time is up.
You cannot be a Minority Leader and remain as Senate Majority leader. It is not done anywhere. You can only be a Senate President if you belongs to Majority Party which is APC. Since you defected from APC, you just shot yourself in the leg and you have no option than to recuse yourself from being a Senate Leader. That is how it is around the World. Go back and check your constitution law. That is the consequence of being two face and game player. Nigeria is not a toy where you can mold anyhow.
