APC Senators Abandon Oshiomhole, And Reconcile With Saraki Behind Closed Doors

Senators on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday, October 9, 2018, agreed not to impeach Senate President Bukola Saraki, Pulse understands.

As both chambers of the National Assembly resumed legislative duties after over two-month recess, most Nigerians were expecting fireworks from the legislature – Senate, especially.

During the break, Saraki dumped the ruling APC for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

His decision was greeted with threats of impeachment from the APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.

But, as lawmakers arrived the White House for plenary on Tuesday morning, the mood was rather sober.

APC Primaries

“You see, the APC primaries have humbled some of these Senators who stuck their neck out for the party”, a source told Pulse. “Only a few of them got the ticket of the party. Most of them are not coming back.”

Senate spokesman, Abdullahi Sabi, and his colleagues from Niger did not win during the primary election in the state.

In Lagos, Senator Gbenga Ashafa lost to Bayo Osinowo.

Senator Shehu Sani's fate of returning to the upper legislative chamber is currently hanging in the balance as Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s candidate, Uba Sani, is just few hours away from being handed the APC certificate of return for Kaduna Central Senatorial District.

In Delta state, Senator Omo-Agege has not been handed the ticket.

The source said most lawmakers who spoke during executive session had dropped their bows and arrows.

“Most of these guys are yet to recover from the shock from the primaries. They have decided to set politics aside and give peace a chance. In the coming days, they will be no fights as they all agreed to focus on national issues,” the source announced.

"The members agreed to give peace a chance and avoid allowing the red chamber of the Federal Legislature to degenerate into an arena of conflict over partisan and personal issues.

"The APC Caucus leadership also extracted a promise from the Senate President that national interest will continue to take precedence over any other consideration in the activities of the Senate.

"The Senators agreed not to allow external forces and influence to cause disaffection, disturbance or crisis within the legislature," the source declared.

  10. The primaries humbled them.

  11. No wonder he adjourned their next date to be after primaries. Saraki is the real game changer. I doff my cap for him.

  12. Who write this article?? He needs to get his facts straight aside from Lagos and possibly delta, most of those guys he called eg kaduna and niger didn’t go through elections. Keep in mind some were promised automatic tickets. In states like kd and niger the governors have a vendetta against the seating senators and as such are looking for a way to get them out, they organise elections which are marred by corruption, thuggery and so muchb illegalities that elections didn’t really take place in most wards. This is why there hasn’t been a conclusive decision yet. The problem is the governors not the senators. Watch and wait before jumping to conclusions.. this is the type of fake news lia keeps talking about..this is not journalism but bending the truth... you people disgust me
