Chairman of ‘Abubakar Bukola Saraki Leadership Forum’ (ABSLF), Alhaji Bibire Ajape yesterday congratulated President Buhari on the emergence of Bukola Saraki as Senate President, noting that a perfect synergy between the two, would boost the performance of the president.
In a press briefing in Ilorin, Kwara State, Ajape said since Buhari a former military junta excelled in his war against indiscipline with Tunde Idiagbon, an Ilorin man, the presence of Saraki another Ilorin man, would equally bring out success in Buhari’s second coming as Civilian President.
He slammed some leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for allegedly interpreting the constitution of the National Assembly as a purely party issue rather than national affair. He also faulted the absence of 51 APC Senators from the election that produced Saraki, noting that such an important period should not have been dedicated for meeting “with any person, irrespective of his societal status”, as claimed by the senators.
“We salute the courage of the 8th National assembly members for the maturity displayed in electing a leader they believed in, irrespective of party affiliation. The nation’s president is well aware of the loyalty of Ilorin, it was General Tunde Idiagbon before and now, it is the turn of Saraki. The President has every cause to rejoice as the square peg is right in the square hole.
“We also wish to enjoin the 51 law makers from our party who accidentally missed the election to give full support and cooperation to the chosen one so as to make true the promise of our party,” he said.
