APC Asks Saraki’s Loyalists In Government To Resign Or Risk Being Sack
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has directed all members of the party in Kwara State in the camp of the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, holding various Federal Government appointments to resign immediately or risk being sacked.
The party gave the directive through the Minister of Information, Mr Lai Mohammed.
Mohammed disclosed this on Sunday at a press conference in his country home, Oro, in Irepodun Local Government Area of Kwara State.
He stressed that it was unacceptable that members of the party who refused to desert the party would not benefit from the government because of other persons that had decamped, but still held on to their appointments.
"They cannot continue to enjoy the political appointment of a party they have dumped, while those who are our genuine members, still in the party don't have such benefits."
He, therefore, warned that if they failed to resign from the appointments as directed, the Federal Government would sack all of them unannounced.
He also expressed the intention of the party to dissolve the Bukola Saraki-led APC in the state under the chairmanship of Ishola Balogun Fulani earlier adopted by the National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole and conduct another congress.

The minister said the new development was as a result of the wide consultations with all the stakeholders in the state since Friday, which climaxed on Sunday.
Mohammed explained that there would be another congress from the ward, till the state that would produce another leadership in the state, saying that pending that time, Bashir Bolarinwa's leadership would hold sway in the state.
On the recent defection of some party members in the state, Mohammed said the APC would still win the governorship election in the state in 2019 without them.
Six members of House of Representatives from Kwara State were among those who dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) last week.
According to him, "for six members of House of Representatives to decamp from All Progressives Congress in Kwara state, to other political parties, we don't need a rocket science to know that all of them are no longer with us.
