Dino Melaye, Senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, has reacted to call by the All Progressives Congress, APC, that Bukola Saraki should resign as the Senate President. Saraki had recently defected from the ruling APC to PDP.
Following his defection, the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole said Saraki can’t runaway with the party’s “crown.” Reacting to Oshiomhole’s remark, Melaye said APC had no crown in the National Assembly.
Addressing journalists in Abuja, Melaye who is a frontline supporter of the Senate President, said “Whatever is illegal will continue and remain illegal.” The Senator said the APC chairman forgot that crowns were worn in towns, villages, communities and kingdoms. He said “nobody wears crown at the National Assembly because the seat of the Senate President is not hereditary.
“Nigerians should not also forget that Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, won the seat through democratic means.”
