PDP senators declare confidence in Saraki as Senate president
PDP senators say despite the row that followed the
confirmation of Rotimi Amaechi yesterday, they still have
strong confidence in the leadership of the senate president,
Bukola Saraki. One of the PDP senators, Gershom Bassey
who spoke with NAN today, said they will continue to
support Saraki as he faces his trial at the Code of Conduct
“We have had two votes of confidence on him and
they stand. He has the confidence of the Senate and
there is absolutely no problem. In spite of the
disagreement between the APC and PDP senators,
nothing has changed.
In democracy, people must have different points of
view and we must express those points of view.
Senate is a vibrant one that has a lot of vibrant
debates; the Senate is not a football team that we
all have to play in the same direction,” he said.
Also speaking, Senator George Sekibo who submitted the
petition against Amaechi to the Senate maintained that PDP
senators were still behind Saraki.
