Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki Tuesday announced via Twitter his long speculated defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Saraki however did not name his next political party even though speculations are rife that he is bound for the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
“I wish to inform Nigerians that, after extensive consultations, I have decided to take my leave of the All Progressives Congress (APC).” @bukolasaraki.
Saraki will leave the party with his protege, Governor Abdulfattah Ahmed of Kwara State and their supporters in the state.
Their defection is coming hours after the APC dissolved the state chapter’s executive council which was under the control of the senate president.
