Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has made peace with the All Progressives Congress (APC). Saraki fell out with the APC after he emerged Senate President on June 9, 2015, despite being excluded from contesting by the party. The disagreement was resolved at a peace meeting between Saraki and the APC’s National Working Committee (NWC) on Wednesday, December 7, 2016.
Saraki later told journalists that a frank discussion was held and both parties have agreed to bury the hatchet so the APC can move forward. “Formally, we both bared our minds, told ourselves hard truths and at the end of the day, we accepted that certain things were not done,” he said. “We accepted to move forward, work closely with the party in the interest of the party because of Nigerians that believe in our party. We need to work closely together and we are hopeful that a new chapter is being opened today and we are committed to the hopes and aspirations we gave Nigerians who came out to vote a year and half ago,” he added.
