Saraki’s Led Faction Dismiss Move To Expel Him From The Party
Mr. Bashir Bolarinwa, the Chairman of the faction, on Friday called for Saraki to be expel from the party, after accusing the Senate President of being the recent mass defection of Senators and members of the House of Representatives from the APC to PDP and other parties.
He said, “As for me, he is no longer a member of the APC. He is just hiding behind one finger deceiving himself and thinking that he is deceiving Kwara people.
“We already know where he belongs. We know how he operates politically. We know very well that he is behind all that happened in the state and even nationally, including the defection of the federal lawmakers.
“What he has done is to look for aggrieved senators, even from other parts of the country. I know that the national leadership of the APC will not just ignore it. For us in Kwara, we saw it coming, so it did not come as a surprise.
“We know that the national leadership (of the APC) will do the needful. We are calling for his expulsion and that of all others who are with him, pretending to be APC members while their hearts are elsewhere. They should all be expelled immediately.”
The APC faction loyal to the Senate President dismissed the move stated by the Bolarinwa led faction.
Sulyman Buhari, the Publicity Secretary of the faction, said there was no basis to expel Saraki from the APC, adding that the Senate President had not engaged in any anti-party activity.
He noted that being the Senate President, Saraki is required by his office to relate with all the members of the National Assembly, including those from other parties
Buhari said, “As far as I am concerned, I will not give much concern to the call. I do not know any other faction of the APC in Kwara State; we have one APC in Kwara and I’m its Publicity Secretary. I don’t think that I should give any statement by some aggrieved people in the state a response.
“The call is baseless. Those who are calling for his expulsion have lost focus. They should rather think of better things to do. There is no basis for anybody to think of expelling Saraki and his loyalists. He is still the Senate President. There are people from other parties in the Senate and he should not be a sectional leader.”
