The ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has warned the outgoing President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki and Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara to steer clear of the incoming 9th National Assembly.
The party issued the warning on Wednesday in Abuja through its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Yekini Nabena who also noted that the party’s decision on the selection and zoning of principal officers is supreme.
He said; “The APC has learnt its lesson from the outgoing National Assembly when impostors masquerading as party men sabotaged our party and hijacked our mandate; affliction shall not rise up the second time.
“The efforts by the Adams Oshiomhole leadership of the party are commendable in achieving a fair selection and zoning arrangement that appeals to a greater section of the party stakeholders.
“APC has an overwhelming majority in the National Assembly and has a legitimate right to make its choices on the selection and zoning of principal offices.
“The APC family is in agreement on the party’s supremacy and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other opposition parties should focus on their minority positions,” he said.
Nabena also added that the efforts by Saraki, Dogara and the PDP NASS caucus to frustrate the plan of APC will not see the light of day.
“Their plans are bound to fail as the APC is a strong party with the unity of purpose,” he said.
