The Kwara state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on Senate President Bukola Saraki to resign.
The call was made in a statement by Bashir Bolarinwa, chairman, caretaker committee of the party in the state.
He asked Saraki to “toe the path of honour and relinquish the office of the senate president exclusively reserved for the party with majority members in the senate”.
Bolarinwa said any politician holding elective office is doing so in trust for the electorate and must be accountable to the people.
“Members of the hallowed chamber must be truly distinguished in character and conduct,” Bolarinwa said.
“The path of honour was led by distinguished Senator Godswill Akpabio who, before defecting to ruling party, had honorably resigned as the leader of the minority party in the senate.
“So Saraki should act honourably, resign from that office of trust. He should for once toe the path of honour and stop heating up the polity unduly.
“Every man or woman holding elective political office must know that they are there on trust for the people. It is therefore expected that such personality should live above board
“Rather than tow the path of honour, Saraki had apparently tried unsuccessfully to incite the unsuspecting public against the federal government, through series of drama in the recent time,” he said.
He declared the support of Kwara APC members for President Muhammadu Buhari.
