In a letter presented to Oshiomhole, through the Kaduna state secretary of APC, Mohammed Bello Shuiabu, Chairman of ASF, Haruna Abdullahi Maikano said: “As a group of northerners concerned with the protection and promotion of democratic institutions, we cannot fold our arms and watch a selfish few, trying to truncate democracy and harm our national interest.”

To this end, Maikano urged the APC secretary to ensure that the letter entitled, “Enough of Saraki Anti-Democratic Conduct,” gets to the national chairman of the party.

Part of the letter read: “We resolved to formally write to you and intimate you on the position of the mass majority of northerners regarding the conduct and performance of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

“We have been following with keen interest, happenings in the National Assembly in the last three years and wish to register our disappointment with the poor leadership of the Senate under Senator Bukola Saraki.

“We call on the national leadership of the APC to pursue the immediate removal of the incompetent Senator Bukola Saraki, who emerged Senate President through alleged fraudulent exercise.

“We urge the national chairman to prevail on our distinguished senators to save the image and restore the glory of the Senate by replacing Saraki, who has so far built the image of a leader with too many pending court cases.”

Meanwhile, a former chieftain of the APC, Comrade Timi Frank, has asked the public to dismiss what he described as “misinformation and a cheap blackmail,” suggesting Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, has close ties with sacked Directorate of State Security (DSS) boss, Mr Lawal Daura.

He, however called on Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to investigate the circumstances that led to the invasion of the DSS by masked DSS operatives.

Comrade Frank asked Osinbajo to look the way of APC national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomohle, his deputy Niyi Adebayo, the chief of staff to the president Abba Kyari and Daura in his the investigations.
