Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Professor Itse Sagay has called the bluff of leadership of the All Progressive Congress regarding its statement on the rift between the Nigerian Senate and the Federal government.
Sagay reiterated this while reacting to the warning by the All Progressive Congress to desist from making utterances that can further deteriorate the current disagreement between the senate and the executive.
Reacting to the APC warning yesterday, Professor Sagay said he was not an appointee of the party and, as such, the party cannot tell him what to do. He disagreed with the party’s statement that he was against the plans of President Buhari and insisted he would not honour the Senate’s summon. His words: “I am not an appointee of the APC. I don’t know where they thought they had the authority to tell me what I should do. I certainly will not honour it (Senate’s summons). My view about what we are doing is in consonance with what the President is doing.
“They (APC) are just compromising with evil. That is what the party is doing and they certainly will not get me to do that. I will continue with the original programme of Buhari to get rid of corruption in this country. I will not compromise.”
