- Senator Magnus Abe says APC lawmakers will do all within the constitution to bring the Senate president position back to the party
- Speaker Dogara refuses to sign PDP nomination forms supporters bought for him
Senator Magnus Abe of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said senators of the ruling party are opposed to having the opposition holding two most important posts in the Senate.
The lawmaker who is a governorship aspirant on the platform of APC told journalists after submitting his governorship nomination form at the national secretariat of the party, that Senate president Bukola Saraki should have known that defecting to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would affect his position as Senate leader.
Senator Abe however, said APC lawmakers will do all within the constitution to bring the Senate president position back to the party.
“I believe the Senate President, in taking the decision to leave the ruling party would have known and actually should know that the party will not be pleased with that position because the reason he won as the President of the Senate is because APC won the election and won the majority in the Senate,” he said.
