APC Disowns Saraki, Dogara, To Take Disciplinary Action

Published

on

Bukola-Saraki

The Leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has rejected the emergence of Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara as Senate President and House of Representatives Speaker respectively.

The party had earlier elected Senator Ahmed Lawan and Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila to run for election to the National Assembly seats at a mock election which Saraki and Dogara rejected. The APC had urged them to support the candidates it chose to represent the party but they declined.

In a reaction to the victories of Saraki and Dogara, the APC has released a statement which may be the beginning of the party’s fall.

“Senator Bukola and Hon. Dogara are not the candidates of the APC and a majority of its National Assembly members-elect for the positions of Senate President and House Speaker,” a statement by the party said.

“The party duly met and conducted a straw poll and clear candidates emerged for the posts of Senate President, Deputy Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives, supported by a majority of all Senators-elect and members-elect of the House of Representatives.

“All National Assembly members-elect who emerged on the platform of the party are bound by that decision. The party is supreme and its interest is superior to that of its individual members. Consequently, the APC leadership is meeting in a bid to reestablish discipline in the party and to mete out the necessary sanctions to all those involved in what is nothing but a monumental act of indiscipline and betrayal to subject the party to ridicule and create obstacles for the new administration. There can be no higher level of treachery, disloyalty and insincerity within any party,” the statement read.

    What is good for the goose should be very palatable to the gander. When Tambuwal with help of Tinubu won as speaker four years ago, the APC called it the triumph of democracy. Sarakis victory should not qualify him for discplinary action or else I will take it that APC has double standards.

    This is to say APC interest is bigger than the National Assemblies. What if the Senators retained Mark what would they have done.
    A better candidate wins and not a puppet.

    Victory to Nigeria, victory to Democracy. Congrats Nigeria, Presidency, Judiciary, Independent Senate, Nigerians and Bukola Saraki. Our prayers are non-stop. All those who are against our national interest shall be humiliated by God one after the other. God is our only godfather and it is only Him that is worth obeying and doing things according to His dictates. No human being should equate himself with God. BUHARI, Saraki and Dogara are for nobody and they are for everybody. God bless Nihlgeria.

    Fashola: If We Keep Our Promises, APC Will Retain Power In 2023Babatunde Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has expressed optimism that Nigerians will still vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, however, added that the only thing that can make Nigerians not to vote for the APC is if the party fails to fulfill its campaign promises to them.

The Minister made this remark while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
