Senate President, Dr
Bukola Saraki, has denied quitting the All Progressives Congress for the Peoples Democratic Party.

The speculation that he had left the ruling party followed his appearance at the PDP
Senate’s caucus meeting on
Wednesday.

In a statement signed by his
Special Assistant on Social Media,
Bamikole Omishore, Saraki
said he was not prepared to leave
a party he that he “helped
midwife and worked for its
victory in the 2015 elections”.

Omishore said Saraki
attended the PDP event in “his
official capacity as Senate
President and chairman, National
Assembly”.

“He attended the end of session
event of the PDP caucus yesterday
evening and spent only 30
minutes before leaving the
members to continue with the
event.

“The Senate President would like
to assure every Nigerian that he is
committed to the APC-led
government and appreciates the
confidence reposed in him and
the APC during the 2015 General
Elections,” Omishore said.
