The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives congress (APC) has accused Senate President Bukola Saraki of breaching Article 21 of the party’s constitution.
Article 21 deals with how the party can punish members who violate its constitution by acts such as “activities or any conduct, which is likely to embarrass or have adverse effect on the party or bring the party into hatred, contempt, ridicule or disrepute.”
The NWC resolution after its meeting Tuesday night came hours after Saraki announced he was leaving the APC for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
In its resolution signed by its National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, the APC asked Saraki to respond to a query within 48 hours explaining why disciplinary actions should not be taken against him.
Some of the allegations the party raised against Saraki is that he “encouraged and facilitated by providing an enabling environment for the defection of some senators who are members of the APC to the other opposition parties.
The NWC asked the senate president to respond to the allegations or face sanctions.
Saraki is yet to reply the APC NWC although he has formally announced he is leaving the party; and so is not beholding to its organs.
