Senate president Bukola Saraki has reportedly said his chances of leaving the All Progressives Congress (APC) are “very, very high.”
According to Daily Trust, the Senate president made this comment to Reuters on Tuesday, July 25.
Saraki’s comment is coming just as some senators and House of Representatives members on the platform of the APC left for the opposition Peoples Democratic Party and the African Democratic Congress.
Following the defection, President Muhammadu Buhari met with senators on the platform of the APC at Aso Rock Villa on Wednesday, July 25.
Meanwhile, the president of the Nigerian Senate, Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday, July 24, recounted his experience in the hands of security operatives, who laid siege to his house and colleague's.

NAIJ.com had earlier reported that security agencies early Tuesday morning, July 24, laid siege to the homes of Saraki and his deputy Ike Ekweremadu in Abuja.
The move was reported to be a ploy to prevent them from making it to the National Assembly because of a plan by many lawmakers to decamp from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
