The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, has said that Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s continued stay in office is unacceptable to the party.
The APC National Chairman, also said that it would be strange if the ruling party is experiencing “graveyard peace”, against the backdrop of recent events in the APC.
Oshiomhole made this disclosure when he appeared on Arise Television.
He added that the APC is prone to controversies, because it is a large party.
Recall, that last week, Oshiomhole was detained by the Department of State Security Services, DSS, and grilled for 9 hours, after some Governors alleged that he received bribes during the party’s primary elections across the country.
In his reaction, Oshiomhole disclosed that although the aggrieved members were allowed to grumble, but the party has moved on, and has put in place internal procedures for reconciliation.
“We have finished our primaries and we have submitted names to INEC, and there are internal procedures for reconciliation, and we are working on them.
“We are a large governing party, and it will only be strange if we are having graveyard peace. People are allowed to grumble, and grumbling is allowed. We should move on and find solutions.”
Asked whether the party still has plans to remove Saraki, he replied: “I think it is about morality.
“We just had an election in the US. The Democrats won more members in the Congress. Without much ado, the Leadership of the House changed. This question did not have to arise. Saraki belongs to a minority party; as it stands today, in the Senate.
“The truth about democracy, is that it is a game of numbers. It is unacceptable that minority provides Leadership over majority.”
