- Bukola Saraki has said time will determine his continuous stay in APC
- Saraki said this while reacting to a statement that the party isn't quite supportive of the Senate president
Senate President Bukola Saraki, while reacting to a statement that he belongs to the All Progressives Congress (APC) but the party increasingly does not belong to him, said time will determine his position in the party.
The Senate president along with some other members of the new Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) have been lamenting what they called segregation and unfavourable treatment by the APC.
Saraki made his statement in Abuja while responding to a comment by the chairman, Daily Trust Newspapers, Kabiru Yusuf, who praised him for going to Saudi Arabia to perform the Lesser Hajj, went to Russia where he addressed the Russian parliament and returned home to attend the APC convention “a party to which he belongs but which increasingly does not belong to him.”
He said: “Kabiru made a comment and said that he welcomes me as a member of the party and further said he is not sure if the party welcomes me as much as I welcome them. I am not going to comment on that because I will be here all night commenting on that. I won’t like to be the front page story but time will tell on that.
“Already, based on this comment, I know most newspapers headline would be time will tell. So I won’t be surprised if I check This Day newspapers and I see: The senate president says time will tell.”
