Members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state said on Sunday in Ilorin that they were awaiting the directive of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki on whether to defect from the ruling party or stay put.
The state APC chairman, Hon. Ishola Balogun-Fulani said at a crowded press conference in Ilorin that members of the party remain committed to Saraki and would follow his decision.
Balogun-Fulani described the APC as a broken party, lamenting that the cord of unity amongst members has been severed due to internal wrangling and the unwarranted trial of the Senate President.
The Chairman had been asked to respond to a call last week by the party’s three senatorial chairmen in the state asking Saraki to lead them out of the APC. The three party leaders were also in attendance at yesterday’s briefing by Balogun -Fulani.
He clarified that:”Everyone has a right to express what he wants but as for us we wait on what our leader(Saraki) will decide ” quoting a Qur’anic verse to seek God’s guidance for the Senate President in taking any decision on the issue of defection.
