The crisis threatening the cohesion of the All Progressives Congress, APC, over the leadership of the National Assembly is far from being over as the party has been unable to resolve the issue of who would emerge as the new leaders of the National Assembly.
When observers thought that the party was close to resolving the issue, the party sadly sank deeper into crisis following the failed attempt last weekend to adopt a consensus candidate for the Senate Presidency job, with Senator Saraki claiming to have the support of about 35 senators.
Meanwhile, Senator Adamu Aliero Tuesday said that Senator Saraki was merely deceiving Nigerians and was far from the truth.
“I have read with surprising disgust the story published in one of the national dailies in which infantile claims were made about the purported blanket support secured by Senator Saraki from the North West for his Senate Presidency ambition. Nothing could be farther from the truth”.
“I want to state categorically that the North West of which I am a member has not given such a blanket support to Senator Saraki. “
“The story published in the paper titled, “Senate Presidency: Saraki Consolidates as Lawan’s Group Hits the Rock”, is riddled with innuendos, half truths and political incantations of no value. “
“The Senator Lawan group remains in strong contention and will not descend to the level of disparaging anyone through sponsored stories that are fabrications and aimed at misleading the unsuspecting public.”
