Saraki ‘I remain loyal but my hands are tied,’ Senate President writes to APC
Senate President, Bukola Saraki has written a
letter to the All Progressives Congress (APC)
explaining why he went against the party’s wishes
in the appointment of leaders.
In the letter, which was signed by Saraki and dated
Thursday, June 25, 2015, the Senate President
explained that the APC’s letter on who to nominate
came after the zonal caucuses had chosen their
candidates in line with parliamentary convention.
Saraki further said that he would have liked to
please the party but his hands were tied.
He also assured the APC of his continuing loyalty in
the letter which was addressed to National
Chairman, John Oyegun.
Oyegun had written to Saraki telling him to choose
Senator Ahmed Lawan as Majority Leader but the
Senate President nominated Senator Ali Ndume
