Germade and Tinubu

A non-political group known as Leadership by Example League International, LELI, has called for immediate arrest and suspension of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Senator Barnabas Gemade by the party.

The group called for their arrest due to what it called ‘April fool in June’.

LELI accused Tinubu and Gemade of colluding to mislead the APC senators that “President Muhammadu Buhari was coming to address the Senate when there was a due letter of proclamation of the National Assembly”.

In a statement by Dr. Batos Nwadike, Chancellor of the group in Abuja, stated that the statement by Tinubu not to recognise the leadership of Senator Bukola Saraki as the senate president was “shameful and embarrasing.”

Saraki was on Tuesday, elected unopposed, with 57 lawmakers present voting for him, with 51 absent, while Hon. Yakubu Dogara was elected as the Speaker of the House of Representatives, defeating Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila from Lagos State by 8 votes.

In a terse statement, Bola Ahmed Tinubu had after the election, vowed never to recognise Saraki as the gavel handler and landlord in the house.

    “I will never recognize such a kangaroo arrangement that produced Bukola as the Senate President.”

Or how do you want me to recognise a man who deliberately defied his own party because of his personal interest? It is not done anywhere,’’ Tinubu fumed.

According to the group, On the day of the NASS leadership election, Tinubu and Germade had colluded with the leadership of the APC to call for a meeting at the International Confference Centre, ICC, Abuja to resolve the impasse trailing who emerged as the sole candidates of the Party by 9.00am, using the name of President Muhammadu Buhari as a convener.

It called on the APC to consider the suspension of Tinubu and Gemade in the interest of the nation for using the name of the President to cause confusion and conmmotion in the nation, therefore calling it ‘April Fool in June.’

The group said it is hopeful that with the election of Saraki as Senate president and Senator Ike Ekweremadu as deputy Senate president, the upper legislative house was poised to give effective leadership.

It urged aggrieved senators to sheathe their swords and give the leadership of Saraki/Ekweremadu the desired support.
