APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole, says since Senate President Bukola Saraki, has defected from the party he rode on to become the number 3 citizen in Nigeria, it will be honorable for him to resign his position as Senate president. Oshiomole said this while speaking to state house correspondents after a meeting with President Buhari yesterday August 1st.
According to Oshiomhole, it is a matter of honour for Saraki to leave “the crown in the family it belongs to.”
”Whatever is the reason, we can defect from the party but we can’t defect from Nigeria. The only thing is that there are other consequential issues that every man or woman of honour who had taken such decisions would be expected to follow through. I mean you should not collect a crown that belongs to a family and wear it on behalf of the family if for your personal reasons which he has enumerated that he has gone to another family. It is just a matter of honour to leave the crown in the house that the crown belongs to. As it stands even now, the APC is still the largest party in the Senate. We have 53 senators, that is much more than what the PDP has, or APGA has” he said
