National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole and some Serving Senators elected on the platform of the All Progressive Congress led by Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan, met behind closed doors with President Muhamamdu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting came amidst the gale of defections being witnessed in the party.
Oshiomhole told State House correspondents after the meeting that the right thing for the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, is to vacate his seat, having left the party.
In his words, He said it was a matter of honour for Saraki to leave “the crown” in the family it belongs to.
Oshiomhole insist that the APC is still the largest party in the Senate, with 53 senators, that is much more than PDP has, or APGA.
The former Edo State Governor said nobody in the party would be surprised by the decisions of those who defected because the signs were clear before now.
He however admitted that it is a tempting moment for the party.
