Senate President Bukola Saraki has said that some powerful people in the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) are fighting because he emerged Senate President ‘from day one’.
Saraki made this known during an interview with Daily Trust.
He said: “There is a lot of misinformation out there. From Day One I took a position, and some very powerful people don’t like the position. When you want to know who is loyal to you, it is during your trying moments. Go back two months ago.
“Who was it who stood up resolutely and said Mr. President will be back and there is no cause for alarm? I don’t think a man who is not loyal to you will do that. We know some people who went to London and saw President Buhari, but they just left. They did not say anything.
“My message to all our party’s supporters is that I am committed, that whatever we promised Nigerians, we will deliver.
“For some of us, this government cannot be allowed to fail. We left one party with our supporters and embarked on this journey. We must be able to go back to them and tell them that journey was worth it. If God forbid this government fails, what will I go back and tell them? It is in my personal political interest to see that this government succeeds.”
