    APC to Senate Presidency: Failure of National Assembly to reconvene Highly Treasonable

    The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said the failure of the leadership of the National Assembly to reconvene, as had been widely expected, is highly treasonable, the Saharareporters reports.

    APC responded to the official confirmation by the National Assembly that it would not reconvene anytime soon, it said, as made available by the news site: “Clearly, Saraki’s actions as Senate President now bother on high treason.”

    “As Chairman of the 8th National Assembly, Saraki’s decision not to reconvene the National Assembly done with the support of the Speaker, House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara further buttresses our position the Saraki is ever ready to pursue his selfish interests over National Interest,” read a statement by Yekini Nabena, the acting National Publicity Secretary of the party.

    “This is another brazen display of his penchant for abuse of powers and sabotage of government, however the cost and implication.

    “While Saraki and his cohorts continue to postpone their doomsday regarding the imminent Senate leadership change, the yet-to-be considered 2019 budget of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is dangerously delayed."

    It is important to note that had the National Assembly reconvened, the request of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for funds to organize the 2019 elections would have been reconsidered.

    Treason is a grevious crime punishable by death under the Nigerian laws. The crime of betraying one's country, especially by attempting to kill or overthrow the sovereign or government is a serious one and alleging the Senate presidency of such is taking it too far.
