The Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked Senate President Bukola Saraki to resign from his position.
The Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the party, Bashir Bolarinwa, made the call in a statement on Saturday in Ilorin.
He said Saraki should tow the path of honour and relinquish the office of the Senate President exclusively reserved for the party with majority members in the Senate.
“Members of the hallowed chamber must be truly distinguished in character and conduct.
“The path of honour was led by Distinguished Senator Godswill Akpabio who, before defecting to ruling party, had honorably resigned as the leader of the minority party in the Senate.
“So Saraki should act honourably, resign from that office of trust. He should for once toe the path of honour and stop heating up the polity unduly,” he said.
According to Bolarinwa, any politician holding elective office hold such in trust for the electorate and must be accountable to the people.
Bolarinwa declared APC members’ support in Kwara for President Muhammadu Buhari.
