Saraki mocked by APC over failed presidential bid

The All Progressives Congress has said the failed bid of the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki for the ticket of Peoples Democratic Party; was a befitting end to the “ambition of a greedy politician.”

This was contained in a statement signed by the acting National Publicity Secretary of APC, Yekini Nabena, of in Abuja, on Tuesday.

He said “With a miserly 317 votes, behind Aminu Tambuwal’s 693 votes and Atiku Abubakar’s 1532 votes, the PDP delegates have given clear indication that they are fed up with Saraki’s political style.

“When a leader cannot be trusted, cannot be relied upon, and cannot keep agreements, the people take due cognizance and records of these actions and respond with their votes at the appropriate time.

“How will someone who emerged Senate President through conspiracy with members of the opposition Party and against the wishes and interests of his own party be trusted to be elected as the presidential candidate of a party? Even on his being elected to the position, did Saraki acquit himself creditably?”

Nabena explained that Saraki’s tenure as Senate President has been one of confrontation between the National Assembly leadership with the Executive.

He accused the Saraki-led Senate of acts of deliberate delay in the confirmation of executive nominees sent for confirmation and unnecessary delays in the passage of annual national budgets.

He said, “For instance, the supplementary budget of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the 2019 General Elections is continually delayed due to Saraki’s selfish political machinations.”
