UPDATE | Saraki Cries Out... I'm Not Going Back To PDP

Embattled senate president, Bukola Saraki, on Thursday cried out over media reports that he may be in the process of dumping the APC and returning to his former party, the PDP.

The speculation followed Saraki’s appearance at the PDP Senate’s caucus meeting on Wednesday.

But Saraki has come out to say he remained committed to the ideals and agenda of the APC.

In a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Social Media, Bamikole Omishore, Saraki said he is not prepared to leave a party he “helped midwife and worked for its victory in the 2015 elections”.

Omishore claimed that Mr. Saraki attended the PDP event in “his official capacity as Senate President and chairman, National Assembly”.

“He attended the end of session event of the PDP caucus yesterday evening and spent only 30minutes before leaving the members to continue with the event."
