Senate President Bukola Saraki and other APC senators are currently meeting with John Oyegun, national chairman of the party, to break the impasse occasioned by the emergence of the new leadership of the national assembly. \
It is the first time since the June 9 election of leaders of the eighth national assembly that the new senate president and the chairman of his party are holding a meeting. Saraki was scheduled to meet with the APC leadership two weeks ago, but the meeting was abruptly cancelled.
Last Friday, Oyegun, had assured Nigerians that the party was working hard to resolve the crisis that had rocked it in recent times, to pave the way for the fulfillment of its campaign promises to Nigerians. ‘”The party has reached out to all interested parties, and when the national assembly resumes next week, Nigerians will see one harmonious, happy APC family,” he had said.
“We owe it to our party, our teeming members and supporters and indeed all Nigerians who reposed so much confidence in us by voting us into office to quickly put the unfortunate incidents of the recent past behind us and forge ahead.”
Also in attendance at Monday’s meeting, which is holding at Oyegun’s house in Abuja, is Ahmed Lawan, the senator favoured by the party to become senate president – before Saraki aligned with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senators to displace him.
