The leadership of the #All Progressives Congress has threatened to sanction the party’s lawmakers who defied its orders and voted for the emergence of #Senator Bukola Saraki as #president of the Senate and Hon. Yakubu Dogara as speaker of the House of Representatives.
Acting contrary to the position of the #APC, the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu #Buhari, on Tuesday June 9, 2015 pledged to work with Saraki and dogara who were elected President of the Senate and Speaker of the House of Representatives respectively.
In a press statement made available to journalists by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, President Buhari reiterated his earlier position of being ready to work with whoever emerges as leaders of the National Assembly.
The statement read in part, “President Buhari had said in an earlier statement that he did not have any preferred candidate for the Senate and the House of Representatives, and that he was willing to work with whoever the lawmakers elected.
“That sentiment still stands. Though he would have preferred the new leaders to have emerged through the process established by the party.”
Adesina said the stability of the nation’s constitutional order and overall interest of the common man were uppermost on the President’s mind, as far as the National Assembly elections were concerned.
The presidential spokesman further quoted the President as calling on all “the elected representatives of the people” to focus on the enormous task of bringing enduring positive change to the lives of Nigerians.
