When Nigerians went to the poll during the March and April, 2015 general elections in the country to cast their votes, most of them voted for change believing that the #All Progressives Congress was going to live up to its expectations of ushering in a new era for the country’s democracy.
Few months into the reign of the ruling #APC at the helm of affairs of the nation, things appear to be heading for the worse. The rift within the ruling APC have deepened and the only question on the minds of observers now is how the spill-over effect will pan out.
The two main party behind this rift are the camp of the Senate #President #Bukola Saraki on the one hand and the the opposition camp of the APC’s annointed: Senator Lawan. Seemingly not happy that the Senator Saraki conspired with the Peoples Democratic Party to steal the Senate Presidency from under the nose of Senator Lawan, the camp of Lawan is bent on frustrating the administration of Senator Saraki.
According to The Punch, the crisis within the ruling All Progressives Congress took a new turn on Sunday with the #Senator Ahmad Lawan group in the Senate accusing the Bukola Saraki group of plotting to make #President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration fail.
“The election of a Peoples Democratic Party senator as deputy senate president is evidently a grand conspiracy to sabotage the #Buhari government,” spokesperson for the pro – Lawan group, #Senator Kabiru Marafa, said.
“The Senate standing rule that was reviewed overnight is another pointer to the fact that the inauguration of the Senate on June 9 and the election of Saraki/Ekweremadu was part of the planned conspiracy.
“That is a criminal conspiracy. Our standing rules were changed. Who changed them? Why were they changed? For what purpose and who ordered the change? Who brought ballot boxes inside the chamber on June 9?
However, a member of the Like Minds Senators, #Rafiu Ibrahim,on Sunday denied allegations of conspiracy against the government of President Buhari with the election of Ekweremadu.
He said, “We (Pro- Saraki group) campaigned across the party lines because some APC senators already had their candidate.
“However, when members of the Senate Unity Forum were not around in the chamber to vote, the #PDP seized the opportunity to contest and Ekweremadu, being a two-term senate president, used his goodwill among the senators to score 54 votes across the APC and the PDP.
