The Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye has reacted to claims from APC that Saraki’s defection should lead to his resignation.
NIGERIA NEWS recalls that Saraki recently defected from APC to PDP.
The defection in recent developments has led to uproars from lawyers and other personnel including citizens who believe Saraki should be made to resign as Senate President for defecting.
The National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomole also stated emphatically that the senatorial President seat is the APC’s crown and Saraki cannot run away with it.
Reacting to Oshiomole’s statement, Melaye said that “APC had no crown in the National Assembly.”
According to him, “Whatever is illegal will continue and remain illegal.”
In his words, “APC chairman forgot that crowns were worn in towns, villages, communities and kingdoms.”
“Nigerians should not also forget that Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, won the seat through democratic means.”
