Abuja - Newly elected Senate President, Bukola Saraki on Tuesday played a fast one on the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Saraki boycotted a meeting called by the party leadership to resolve the crisis that has engulfed the party over the lawmakers’ battle for top seats in the National Assembly.
While the party leaders were waiting for Saraki at the venue of the meeting, Saraki and his supporters headed straight to the National Assembly to participate in the election of principal officers.
