There is a hint that Dr Bukola Saraki‘s tenure as President Of the Senate might soon come to an abrupt end, sources have revealed.
While Saraki is rumoured to have concluded his defection plans from the ruling All Progressives Congress sometime this week, a move that would leave the leadership of the Senate in the hands of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, a source told the Guardian that “There is plan for rival Senate group to sit and elect new principal officers today,”.
Saraki’s nPDP caucus of the APC last month accused the APC of failing to honour its campaign promises, tagging the party as deceitful. The group has since cut ties with the APC.
Saraki on his part has been having a running battle with a power bloc in the party. This culminated in him being invited by the Nigerian police in June after it claimed that members of a robbery gang that attacked six banks and killed 33 persons in Offa, Kwara, confessed to have a “direct link” to the senate president.
He was again invited late Monday night to appear at Guzape Police Station on Tuesday morning.
