Bukola Saraki, senate president, has expressed his commitment to the ruling All Progressives Congress and the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Bamikole Omishore, special assistant to the senate president, said this in a statement released on Thursday.
The statement is coming days after Saraki reaffirmed his loyalty to the APC during the 10th Abuja Housing Show.
Omishore noted that Saraki’s attendance at an event of the Peoples Democratic Party caucus on Wednesday was in official capacity.
“The attention of the Senate President’s Media Team has been drawn to a false publication that is making the rounds on social media that Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki has defected from the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC). This fabrication is entirely untrue as the Senate President stands committed to the APC; a party that he helped midwife and worked for its victory in the 2015 elections.
“In his official capacity as Senate President and chairman, National Assembly, he attended the end of session event of the PDP caucus yesterday evening and spent only 30 minutes before leaving the members to continue with the event.
“The Senate President would like to assure every Nigerian that he is committed to the APC-led government and appreciates the confidence reposed in him and the APC during the 2015 General Elections.”
