Federal Government Speaks On Saraki Defection



The Nigeria government on Wednesday said the defection of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, from All Progressives Congress (APC) was a great comfort to the party.

The government through the minister of Information and Culture,Alahji Lai Muhammed, said Saraki was an opposition in APC, who used his position as Senate President to frustrate the workings of the government.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who stated this while briefing State House correspondents after the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC), presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Villa, said Mr Saraki had become the greatest obstacle to the government.

Mr Mohammed, expressed doubt over the party membership of Mr Saraki.
“I don’t think the government would have suffered more as regards the delay in passing the budget. The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has behaved all along as if he was a member of the opposition,” he said.

The minister said APC stands to lose nothing with the defection of Mr Saraki and his loyalists adding that the party in his native Kwara State will grow stronger with the exit.

He also said the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the state have also defected to APC “demonstrating their rejection of Mr Saraki’s return to their party”.
