Saraki says he is not leaving APC despite “persecution”

Senate President Bukola Saraki has refuted report making the rounds on social media, that he is set to defect from his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), following his recent travails in the hands of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), over a 16-count charge bordering on alleged corruption and false declaration of assets, levelled against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

Saraki made this known via his verified Twitter handle, @bukolasaraki following mixed reactions that trailed the removal of his party’s name from his handle.

In his words; “I remain loyal to the All Progressives Congress” the former Governor of Kwara State reiterated.

The party’s name was on Saturday removed from the official Twitter account of the Senate President, which he uses frequently to communicate with the public.

Saraki alongside his deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu are currently facing allegations of forgery of Senate Standing Rules.
