Buhari Is Innocent, Hold Saraki And Dogora Responsible

Senator Bukola Saraki
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has said Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari should not be held responsible for the current leadership crisis rocking the country’s National Assembly.
The Party said this on Friday in a statement issued by its Publicity Secretary, Omo’ba Abayomi Adesanya, and obtained by a SaharaReporters correspondent in Akure.
Adesanya said instead that Nigerians should hold the country’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and its Speaker of the House of Representative, Yakubu Dogara, responsible for the crisis and recent brawl.
“Nigerians should hold Saraki and Dogara responsible for the crisis rocking the National Assembly” adding that, “Saraki and Dogara are working against the Party [APC] that sponsored them” by initiating an unholy-alliance with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to truncate the ‘Change Mantra’ of the people to fight corruption.”
The Party called on Nigerians to jointly condemn their action as it is suspect that the duo has a hidden agenda working alongside leaders in the PDP.
“Therefore, the people must condemn this act in the public justice, before they truncate the 'Change Agenda'; Saraki and Dogara actions and inactions shows the duo has a hidden loyalty to the PDP."
The statement also bemoaned that the duo of Saraki and Dogara plotted with some disgruntled members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the floor of the Assembly to carry out a ‘coup’ as a result of over-ambition.
“Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara afterward, refused to carry out Party's directives; but instead connived with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members to execute personal ambition and to display personal aggrandizement."
The statement added that: "It should be noted that the Senate President and Speaker are not the APC’s principal officers, but the principal officers representing APC in the National Assembly and by precedence and practice.”
"They are expected to carry out party’s directives and also provide a level playing field for all members, while the party leaders are supposed to be the main proponent of who occupies the party’s positions,” the statement continued.
While pledging its commitment to the leadership of the Party, the statement called for the punishment of all lawmakers, and members, who disregard Party’s hierarchy.
“We want to renew our call for the National Leadership of our great Party to sanction the APC Senators and Reps members who had shown total disregard for the wishes of the majority members of the APC and the party hierarchy.”
“Never before in Nigerian political history, has any member of a political party shown so much disdain and disrespect to his party as the Saraki and Dogara-led rebels have shown to the APC”, the statement concluded.
