Defection: Saraki is The Worst Senate President in The History of Nigeria – APC
The All Progressives Congress on Thursday slammed the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, calling him the worst in the history of Nigeria.
The party disclosed this in a statement released by Mr. Yekini Nabena, its acting National Publicity Secretary in Abuja.
According to the ruling party, the position of the Senate President is one of the highest political offices one can attain in every democratic country and it is a position usually reserved for the best, experienced and exemplary politicians who by their character and conduct in public offices, serve as role models for the younger generation.
The statement reads, “In terms of exemplary personage, the reverse is the case in respect of the current Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, who has been a dismal failure and has been involved in one controversy or the other: budget padding, filibustering, legislative rascality, sabotage of matters of national interest, among other criminalities too numerous to mention.
“Having suffered under the 16-year misrule of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr. Saraki will go down in our country’s history as the worst Senate President Nigeria has had the misfortune to have.
“Since his usurpation of the coveted seat, achieved through a wicked conspiracy with members of the opposition PDP, it has been from one controversy to another: the code of conduct trial for false declaration of assets; conspiracy with his deputy to fraudulently alter the rules of the Senate; and links to the deadly armed robbers who wasted many lives in the Offa robbery attack. It is alleged that some of the robbery suspects were his political thugs used to rig elections. A common adage says, “Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are.”
The statement added that Saraki was definitely not a good example for political leadership in the country.
