Bukola Saraki, President of the Senate, says Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), once admitted to him his “displeasure with the style of the government” of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Saraki said this on Monday while reacting to Sunday’s statement by Tinubu on his defection from the ruling party to the Peoples Democratic Party.
On Sunday, Tinubu had said the exits of Aminu Tambuwal and Saraki from the APC “had nothing to do with the governance of the nation”. “It was about forging a personal ambition predicated on the defeat of progressive reform not the advancement of it,” he said.
“Much the same for Senate President Saraki. Returning to the PDP, he harbours dreams of the presidency but Tambuwal’s ambition will dwarf Saraki’s when the two collide. If Saraki had remained in the APC, he would be unable to reclaim his Senate seat let alone the Senate Presidency. He thus bolted because he lusts for the presidency but was promised by the PDP, at least, a return to his position in the Senate.”
However, responding on Monday, Saraki said Tinubu was well-aware of his true grievances, and that even Tinubu himself had “also mentioned that he had equally suffered disrespect from the same government which we all worked to put in office”.
