news: We have never had a bad senate leadership like this one by Bukola Saraki- Governor Nasir el-Rufai
Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna state has attacked Nigeria's Senate President, Bukola Saraki calling him a bad leader.
El-Rufai described the 8th senate under the leadership of Bukola Saraki as the worst in the history of the nation during an interview aired on some local radio stations in Kaduna on Thursday, July 26, 2018.
“We have never had a bad senate leadership like this one by Bukola Saraki. Some people whose names were mentioned among those who decamped said they never authorised it,” he said.
The governor reportedly accused the Saraki masterminding and manipulating the list of some members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, who defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
El-Rufai went further to say many of those in the national assembly rode to power on the back of “We know those who cannot win elections in their homes. Many of them found themselves in the national assembly by riding on the back of Buhari. Some of them won the election because presidential and parliamentary elections held on the same day,” he said.
However, El-Rufai reportedly expressed optimism that Adams Oshiomhole, chairman of the ruling party, would resolve APC crisis.
