Saraki Perpetuating Legislative Rascality - APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki of engaging in legislative rascality and sabotage of the executive arm of government.

In a statement issued yesterday by its acting National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabene, the ruling party also accused Saraki and the main opposition party of trying to hide under the yet-to-be assented Electoral Act Amendment bill not to reconvene the National Assembly plenary.


In a swift response, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) described the claims as blackmail incapable of swaying Nigerians.

On its readiness for elections, APC boasted that if elections were to be held today, its candidates would win by a landslide, “judging by visible and landmark achievements recorded by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.”

The APC said: “While we strongly condemn the abuse of office by the Senate President backed by his PDP cohorts in sabotaging the executive, specifically the INEC, all well-meaning Nigerians have a duty to speak up and ensure that the National Assembly performs its constitutional role and not serve an individual’s personal interest and sinister ends of the opposition, PDP.

“We call on all Nigerians, civil society and indeed the international community to resist the ongoing travesty and legislative rascality being perpetrated by the Senate President and the PDP.”
