Embattled Nigeria’s Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki, has denied reports alleging that he had defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as he insisted he was still loyal to the All Progressives Congress (APC), having contributed to the party’s growth and development.

There were reports on some media that the Senate president met with former president, Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja on Wednesday, July 20 during a closed door meeting where he declared his readiness to dump the APC and re-join the PDP.

While reacting to the report of his alleged defection, Senator Bukola Saraki, in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media, Bamikole Omishore, denied the rumour and insisted Saraki was committed to the APC.

Read the statement below:

“The attention of the Senate President’s Media Team has been drawn to a false publication that is making the rounds on social media that Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki has defected from the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC). This fabrication is entirely untrue as the Senate President stands committed to the APC; a party that he helped midwife and worked for its victory in the 2015 elections.

“In his official capacity as Senate President and chairman, National Assembly, he attended the end of session event of the PDP caucus yesterday evening and spent only 30 minutes before leaving the members to continue with the event.

“The Senate President would like to assure every Nigerian that he is committed to the APC-led government and appreciates the confidence reposed in him and the APC during the 2015 General Elections.”

Recall that Saraki served as governor of Kwara state on the platform of the PDP before defecting to the APC ahead of the 2015 general election.

He won the senate seat and eventually unanimously emerged as the Senate president in a shrewd move that has resulted in criticism from some APC members.

There has been speculation that Saraki might leave the APC following series of charges brought against him particularly the alleged forgery of the Senate standing rule.
