Senator representing Kano North Senatorial District, Barau Jibrin has faulted Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu over his remark that the National Assembly was not a party secretariat. Ekweremadu had said this when the All Progressive Congress (APC) insisted that its supremacy and wishes in the matter of who occupied leadership position must be respected.

In an open letter to both Senators Ekweremadu and Muhammed Danjuma Goje, in Kano yesterday, Jibrin who is a former Chairman, Appropriation Committee, House of Representatives accused the group loyal to the senate president, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ekweremadu of allegedly turning upside down “the time-tested values of democracy and leadership they had professed publicly and privately”.

He recalled how Senator Ekweremadu in a paper titled “Leadership in the National Assembly” presented in Abuja at the Induction Certificate Course on Legislative Studies for the 8th National Assembly held on April 27th 2015 had espoused party supremacy particularly as it affects the appointment of the principal officers of the senate.

According to the lawmaker, it is not only the flouting of the rules concerning the party’s latitude to present the leadership of its senate caucus that Senator Ekweremadu has provided support for but he has also provided support to Senator Saraki to flout the ranking rule in the legislature unlike what he explained at the same public gathering.
