The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Nigeria has expressed displeasure with the outcome of the National Assembly leadership election, calling it Treachery.
Contrary to the party’s choice of candidates in a mock election over the weekend, Mr Bukola Saraki emerged the Senate President while Mr Yakubu Dogara clinched the position of the Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Both persons are members of the APC.
After the result of the House of Representatives’ election was announced by the Clark of the House, the ruling party said the outcome of the elections of the two chambers was “totally unacceptable and the highest level of indiscipline and treachery”.
The party had chosen Senator, Ahmed Lawan for the Senate President’s position and Honourable Femi Gbajabiamila, as the its candidate for the position of the Speaker.
