Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has denied being a part of the newly registered political party, Action Peoples Party (APP).
Saraki, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Yusuph Olaniyonu, called to remembrance that the party’s chairman, Mr. Ikenga Ugochinyere, duly resigned as an aide.
Recall that as reported by Naija News, Ugochinyere was special assistant on youth affairs to the senate president until his official resignation in 2017, when he claimed his role as a party chairman would not allow him continue as an aide to Dr. Bukola Saraki.
The statement released by Saraki on his relationship with the new party, reads: “Our attention has been drawn to reports by some news platforms that described Mr. Ikenga Ugochinyere, the Chairman of a political party known as “APP” as an aide to the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki.
“Please note, that in a letter of resignation addressed to President of the Senate, and dated October 3, 2017, Ugochinyere, who was then President of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, said he had formed a political party and would be resigning his position as Special Assistant on Youth Affairs.
“In this regard, we ask that all platforms be guided in their reporting of the activities of Ugochinyere and his party, and refrain from including ‘Saraki’s’ name in any of such related stories.”
