The Presiedent of the 8th Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki has said he left the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) when he realised that the change agenda promised by the party to Nigerians was not being achieved.
The Former Governor of Kwara State made this revelation yesterday while speaking during a Twitter space discussion titled #2023Elections, which was hosted by Rinu Oduala, one of the organisers of the #EndSARS protest.
According to him, “My view in 2015, honestly, was that there was an issue of security and the level of corruption at that time and the issue of integrity, ability to lead the country with honesty and good intentions a lot of us felt that there was going to be a change,” he added.
“There was nothing personally one was gaining out of it. It wasn’t that one was doing it out of any personal gain at all.
“You could see that when I realised that what we hoped to achieve and deliver for Nigerians was not happening, we parted ways.
“I think that that was an acceptance for me to say that this was not what we bargained for. That is the truth, I am speaking from the heart about what happened.
“We had great hopes and intentions. It did not happen. I, unlike others, said look this is not what I promised Nigerians, and I can’t continue, and we parted ways, and that is the truth about that.”. He said
