The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole; and some senators elected on the platform of the party led by the Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan, on Wednesday met behind closed doors with President Muhamamdu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.The meeting came amidst the gale of defections being witnessed in the party.Oshiomhole told State House correspondents at the end of the meeting that the right thing for the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, is to vacate his seat, having left the party.He said it was a matter of honour for Saraki to leave “the crown” in the family it belongs to.Oshiomhole said, “But whatever is the reason, we can decamp from party, but we can’t decamp from Nigeria.“The only thing is that there are other consequential issues that every man or woman of honour who had taken such decisions would be expected to follow through.“I mean, you should not collect a crown that belongs to a family and wear it on behalf of the family if for your personal reasons which he has enumerated that he has gone to another family.“It is just a matter of honour to leave the crown in the house that the crown belongs to.“As it stands even now, APC is still the largest party in the Senate. We have 53 senators, that is much more than PDP or APGA has.”
