Bukola Saraki dumps APC
The Senate President Bukola Saraki has dumped the ruling All Progressive Congress Party, APC.

Read his tweet
I wish to inform Nigerians that, after extensive consultations, I have decided to take my leave of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Saraki however did not state the party where he is moving to. But public opinion suggests that he will be returning to the opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
Recollect taht some few days back, a chieftain of Accord Party and former presidential spokesperson, Dr Doyin Okupe, projected that the 2019 presidential election would be a battle between Senate President Bukola Saraki and President Muhammadu Buhari.
Okupe was actually analysing the defection of some National Assembly members from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Channels Television Politics on Friday.
Some political analysts have also suggest that Saraki has always bore the intentions of running for the Presidency, which might not be feasible for him on the platform of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC as he will be standing a stiff competition with President Buhari
