– The NWC of the APC issues a query to Senate president, Bukola Saraki over the mass defection of members of the National Assembly
– The party also wants Saraki to respond to why discipinary action should not be taken against him
– The party accuses Saraki of deliberately refusing to screen Buhari’s nominees for various positions
The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reportedly queried the Senate president, Bukola Saraki, for allegedly producing a conducive environment for its members to defect recently.
The party’s NWC asked Saraki to respond within 48 hours to its query as to why disciplinary action should not to be taken against him for breaching article 21 of the constitution of the party.
Vanguard reports that the party’s query took the decision in a resolution signed by the national secretary of the party, Mai Maila Buni.
It claimed that the senate president had allegedly flouted the laws of the party with his activities.
TRACKNEWS.NG could not, however, ascertain whether the query was issued just before Saraki’s defection or after he announced decamping from the APC.
Part of the query read: “You encouraged and facilitated by providing an enabling environment for the defection of some senators who are members of the APC to the other opposition parties.
“That you have deliberately refused to screen nominees for appointments submitted by Mr President who are members of the party from being confirmed by the senate. This has caused untold embarrassment and ridicule to the party and the government.
“That you have organized a public rally in your state where members of the party urged you to decamp to PDP. That as a follow up to the above, the Kwara state governor who is known to be your staunch supporter, had made public pronouncements suggesting that he will decamp from the party as an indicator to your formal defection.
“That you used the office of the Senate president to cause avoidable delays in the budgetary process and passage of the appropriation act into law thereby frustrating the implementation of the party’s manifesto and programs and frustrating the APC led federal government in the actualization of the campaign promises of the party.
“Converting the guest house of the Senate president to meeting points and presiding over anti APC activities in the guest house and encouraging defection of senators from the party and presiding over such meetings and compiling a list of the said defectors including some without out their consent.
“Procuring joint letter of decampees from the APC and reading same on the floor of the senate including some who did not accede to defecting thereby causing embarrassment to the party. Inspite of the efforts to address grievances to reconcile aggrieved members, you worked against the process and encouraged the formation of an association which sought to impersonate and pass off the name of the party.”
The report said the resolution demanded that the Senate president responds the allegations or face sanctions.
TRACKNEWS.NG earlier reported that Senate president Bukola Saraki dumped the pp Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
This was contained in a statement he released on Tuesday, July 31.
The senate president accused some elements in the APC of making peace and cooperation difficult in the party.
