A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, Francis Onabis has appealed to the leadership of the party to support Senate President, Bukola Saraki and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.
In a statement signed in Lagos by his Media Officer, Ayokunle Oloye, Onabis said it will be undemocratic for the party not to recognize the leadership of the National Assembly who are its members.
“Their emergence is good for democracy in Nigeria. In an as much they are our party members, they were free to contest for the post of the president of the senate and Speaker,” Onabis said.
He warned of overheating the polity, should Saraki and Dogara be sanctioned by the APC over the manner they emerged as Senate President and Speaker respectively.
According to Onabis, while the party leadership must not condone indiscipline of its members, it must also provide a level playing ground for all members at all time.
“In as much as they are prepared to make the necessary change in the senate and work with both executive and judicial arm of government for the betterment of the Nation in line with our party blueprint for a new Nigeria, APC leadership must give them total support,” Onabi said.
He warned that the overall goal of the APC to bring positive change must not be traded on the alter of internal rancor.
