PDP will not Take Senate President Seat – APC Chairman

The Chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun has stated that APC will not allow the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) take over the President if Bukola is removed.


Mr. Oyegun made this known while speaking to journalists, cleared the air on the comments he made earlier about Saraki’s trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), saying he was misunderstood.

He said
“That misunderstanding is still on?
“Let me put it simply. There were basically two points that I was making. Number one, as a party of change even as a party, we cannot interfere in a judicial process that is ongoing. That was clear. And when they asked about the senate, I said under no circumstance can we compromise on the leadership of the senate.

“We are the majority party and the issue doesn’t even really arise but unfortunately the way it was put, the misinterpretation has been a little bit too intense and that is clear. It just doesn’t arise at all. The issue, the argument and the rest doesn’t arise. If somebody wants to theorise and postulate, that’s a different matter. It doesn’t arise.”

Some political observers believe Saraki stepped on some very powerful toes when he allegedly sought the help of the PDP to emerge as the head of the Senate.
