'I did not do any deal with PDP for Ekweremadu to become Deputy Senate President' - Saraki says

Senate President Bukola Saraki has denied that he had a deal with PDP to ensure that Ike Ekweremadu who is from the opposition party, emerge Deputy Senate President. On June 9th 2015, a controversial election in the senate saw the emergence of Saraki and Ekweremadu emerge as President and Deputy Senate President. This was against the will of the APC leadership.



Some Nigerians believed that Saraki had a deal with PDP that if the PDP members voted him into power, one of their members would emerge as deputy. For political arrangement, this is incorrect as this is an APC government that is expected to have all their party members in all positions of power.

While answering questions from one of his followers this morning, Saraki denied claims of having a deal with PDP to ensure Ike Ekweremadu emerged Deputy Senate President. According to him, some of the APC members who were supposed to vote during the senate election, decided to be somewhere else when the election was taken place. Ekweremadu defeated Ali Ndume of the APC to emerge the 8th Deputy Senate President. See his tweet replies below...

I will believe him. Because the case of APC is, the case of when God wants to punish a people. Their pride, their arrogance, ineptitude, rivalries, inefficient party leadership and other plaques helped to make APC, a party where you can do whatever and gain whatever. But the pride of the party leaders have made it difficult for them to admits what transpired that day as their error. Rather, they're busy fighting @Saraki and Ekweremadu.

Bringing up the issue again is to heath up the political atmosphere.

As simple as that. Anyone claiming saraki sold out needs to get thier head checked. Things are done by voting saraki couldn't have won't with only the vote from PDP. And also why did other senators go for another meeting when the clerk got a letter from the president to carry on with the first proceeding in the Senate. APC was just so naive
