2019 Elections: Resign now or Else…. – Kwara APC warns Saraki

The Kwara chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on Dr. Bukola Saraki to resign his appointment as the Senate President.

The call was made in a statement by the Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the party, Mr. Bashir Bolarinwa, on Saturday in Ilorin.

He said Saraki should tow the path of honor and relinquish the office of the Senate President exclusively reserved for the party with majority members in the Senate.

“Members of the hallowed chamber must be truly distinguished in character and conduct.

“The path of honor was led by Distinguished Senator Godswill Akpabio who, before defecting to ruling party, had honorably resigned as the leader of the minority party in the Senate.

“So Saraki should act honorably resign from that office of trust. He should for once tow the path of honor and stop heating up the polity unduly,” he added.

According to Bolarinwa, any politician holding elective office hold such in trust for the electorate and must be accountable to the people.

“Every man or woman holding elective political office must know that they are there on trust for the people. It is therefore expected that such personality should live above board.

“Rather than towing the path of honour, Saraki had apparently tried unsuccessfully to incite the unsuspecting public against the Federal Government, through series of drama in the recent time,” he said.

Bolarinwa declared A PC members’ support in Kwara for President Muhammadu Buhari.

  • Look, my friend, Bolarinwa, didn't you get the memo? Saraki has since departed your party. Forget Saraki, just mind your business.

    Saraki by the majority votes of his peers, was elected the head to one leg of the tripod that is the Nigerian govt. Saraki is beyond Kwara State, but we thank them all the same, for giving up an extraordinary son to our nation's service.

    Saraki is a crucial pivot of the Nigerian construct, enough with pulling this country down. We are not jesters, we don't live in a zoo and we don't work at a circus. Government should shut the hell up and get on with the business of fixing our country. Don't tell me about Saraki, do your job!
