From Musa Solomon Yola
The Adamawa State House of Assembly member representing Jada/ Mbulo constituency Alhaji Alhassan Umar, has said that Senate President Bukola Saraki, is not only a threat to the future of All Progressive congress (APC) ,but that he has also formed a strong opposition within the party.
Umar who spoke to journalists Tuesday in Yola said that the Senate President has formulated multiple plans to frustrate the government of President Muhammadu Buhari, to the detriment of Nigerians.
The lawmaker pointed out that the unnecessary crisis over the confirmation of Ibrahim Magu , as chairman Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was a grand design by the Saraki to frustrate the war against corruption by the present administration.
“Senate President Bukola is an opposition within APC, he personalises everything about government policies, he is running the Senate as his private estate , he poses serious political threat to the future of the APC if the party’s national leadership does not call him to order,” he stated.
Umar maintained that the action of the Senate dominated by APC members is anti-government and that their continuos opposition to the president’s decisions will not bring development to the country.
He urged the senators not to personalise issues of national interest and that they should put aside their political differences and work for the growth of democracy.
He urged the Senate to confirmed Magu, pointing out that EFCC under the present chairman has been active and that the tempo must be maintained in order cage the menace of corruption.
