Suspend Tinubu, Gemade for opposing Saraki’s election- Group asks APC

A group, Leadership by Example League International (LELI), has asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) to suspend former Lagos State governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and Senator Barnabas Gemade, over their opposition to the election of Senator Bukola Saraki as Senate president.

Dailypost reports that Saraki emerged against all odds on Tuesday, defeating Senator Ahmed Lawan, the official candidate of the party.
In a statement by Dr. Batos Nwadike, Chancellor of the group, congratulating Saraki, LELI said it was hopeful that with the election of Saraki as Senate president and Senator Ike Ekweremadu as deputy Senate president, the upper legislative house was poised to give effective leadership to Nigerians through seamless legislations.

The group asked aggrieved senators to sheathe their swords and give the leadership of Saraki/Ekweremadu the desired support.
LELI said “the statement emanating from Tinubu and Gemade to the effect that they do not recognise the avowed election held transparently in the hallowed hall of the red chamber on Tuesday is embarrassing.”
It expressed worry over what it called ‘April fool in June’ allegedly given to the senators of APC extraction by Tinubu that “President Muhammadu Buhari was coming to address the Senate when there was a due letter of proclamation of the National Assembly.”

LELI said the National Assembly was for Nigeria and not Lagos State House of Assembly.
The group also congratulated Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the House of Representatives and the Deputy Speaker, Yusuf Larson.
“Nigerians should support a strengthened and virile National Assembly,” the statement concluded.
