The All Progressives Congress has restated his committment to anti-corruption war in the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, even in the face of blackmail.
This came as the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, diverted the the blame on executive for keeping and delaying the supplementary budget for the Independent National Electoral Commission’s 2019 budget. The fund which is meant for election, which if it approved timely might hamper the performance of the 2019 general election process.
But replying to the development, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Yekini Nabena, said no amount of blackmail would discourage the present government from hunting down corruption at all cost.
The party spokesperson also said the call for Saraki’s resignation was a question of morality and that the party would still insist that he either leaves or be impeached.
Nabena said, “We will not succumb to blackmail; well-meaning Nigerians know how Saraki has been using his position to undermine this administration. Like I have said it before, the fight against corruption will continue and Nigerians know this administration has performed.”
Recall that FELLOW PRESS reported how pro-Saraki Senators had accused the All Progressives Congress of making Saraki a scapegoat rather than facing governance.
Saraki has been facing series of backlashes since he attained the exalted position of Senate Presidency in the last three years and only to be intensified after his defection to the Peoples Democratic Party, as it degenerated to move to impeach him.
