Senate President Bukola Saraki has refuted report making the rounds on social media, that he is set to defect from his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), following his recent travails in the hands of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), over a 13-count charge bordering on alleged corruption and false declaration of assets, levelled against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
Saraki made this known via his verified Twitter handle, @bukolasaraki following mixed reactions that trailed the removal of his party’s name from his handle.
The party’s name was on Saturday removed from the official Twitter account of the senate president, which he uses frequently to communicate with the public.
Saraki’s verified account previously says “member of the APC”, in part but at the time of this report, the party’s name is no longer on the handle.
However, the Senate President who was reacting to the controversies this removal has caused said via his Twitter handle that “I remain a card carrying member of my dear party. But I’m also honoured to serve as Senate President of all Senators.”
