It doesn’t seem like the NASS crisis will be ending any time soon.
The chairmen of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the southwest have also vowed not to recognize the emergence of Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara until the crisis revolving around the National Assembly contest is sufficiently resolved by the party.
according to sources in the party, the chairman of the Ekiti state chapter of the party, Jide Awe disclosed this on Sunday as his counterpart in Oyo State, Akin Oke insisted that the two presiding officers of the National Assembly should apologize to the party to avoid compounding their problems.
Awe noted that the chairmen of the party from the region unanimously resolved not to congratulate Saraki and Dogara.
Reacting to the assumption that maybe they were acting the script of a national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu, he said, “that is what they will think but they are wrong. People do not know the workings of the APC. For Asiwaju (Tinubu) not to be at the NEC meeting means that he is not a member.”
Also chairman of the party in Oyo state, Oke said the state chairmen of the party believe very strongly that party supremacy should be respected. He maintained that the state chairmen visited Saraki to ensure that he respects the position of the party.
