APC National Working Committee has accused Senate President Bukola Saraki of breaching Article 21 of the party’s constitution.
Article 21 deals with how the party can punish members who violate its constitution by acts such as “activities or any conduct, which is likely to embarrass or have adverse effect on the party or bring the party into hatred, contempt, ridicule or disrepute.”
The NWC resolution after its meeting Tuesday came hours after Saraki announced he was leaving the APC.
In its resolution signed by its National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, the APC asked Saraki to respond to a query within 48 hours explaining why disciplinary actions should not be taken against him.
According to a communique shared by Simon Ebegbuleman, aide to the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, the National Working Committee has queried Saraki.
Some of the allegations the party raised against Saraki is that he “encouraged and facilitated by providing an enabling environment for the defection of some senators who are members of the APC to the other opposition parties.
