Forgive Saraki and Dogara; APC Chieftain begs Party Leadership

ikeA Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State, Francis Onabis has appealed to the leadership of the party to support Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.

Onabis in a statement signed in Lagos by his Media Officer, Ayokunle Oloye, said it will be undemocratic for the party not to recognize the leadership of the National Assembly who are its members.

“Their emergence is good for democracy in Nigeria. In an as much they are our party members, they were free to contest for the post of the president of the senate and Speaker,” Onabis said.

Onabis warned that the party leadership may be overheating the polity if Saraki and Dogara are sanctioned over the manner they emerged as Senate President and Speaker respectively.

Onabis said while the party leadership must not condone indiscipline of its members, it must also provide a level playing ground for all members at all time.

Onabis urged the leadership of both assemblies to work in line with the APC manifestos, stressing that it’s unhealthy if they form an opposition against the Buhari led administration.

“In as much as they are prepared to make the necessary change in the senate and work with both executive and judicial arm of government for the betterment of the Nation in line with our party blueprint for a new Nigeria, APC leadership must give them total support.”

He warned that the overall goal of the APC to bring positive change must not be traded on the alter of internal rancor, saying all arms of government have roles to play to make the APC-led Federal Government succeed.
