Posted by

The Federal Government on Monday accused the Senate President, Bukola Saraki of laying the “foundation” for the gale of defections across the country.

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed said Saraki laid “the foundation” for defection the day he became Senate President.

Speaking during a visit to the Authority Newspapers in Abuja, the Minister noted that some politicians defected for “political calculation and personal reasons’’.

He insisted that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, was not perturbed by the gale of defections, especially by members of the National Assembly.

“We did not just start noticing this, the foundation for it was laid the day Dr Bukola Saraki became the Senate President.

“In every part of the world, when a party has the majority in Parliament, the party decides who is going to be the leader of the parliament.
