Abuja - Former governor of Kwara State and chairman, Senate Committee on
Environment, Dr Bukola Saraki, has described the newly registered All
Progressives Congress (APC) as a real national opposition party and an
alternative to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Speaking with journalists in Ilorin on Thursday after observing the
Eid-el-fitri prayers, Senator Saraki said the registration of APC is
good for the nation’s democracy “because it makes it more competitive
and the electorate will not be taken for granted.
“At least for now, you have a national opposition. We have been
saying that the issue with the opposition parties was that they were
regional and they were not national. And I think for once, we truly have
a national opposition party which I think is good.”
