Rivers - A chieftain of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Robinson Dumnamene has stated that the party is setting machinery in place to produce the next senate president in 2019, Daily Trust reports.
The member of the House of Representatives, whose election, along with others from Rivers state was cancelled, said: “It is very possible. But looking at the issue of Saraki, you will no doubt see that there is so much political undertone. Those are the things we talk about in this country – political witch hunt.
“Look at the so called fight against corruption, it is skewed. Saraki did not emerge the Senate President from the mainstream APC. With what is going on now, one can say that there is witch hunt.
“Crimes that had been committed many years ago are being brought up now. Whichever way it goes, the PDP caucus in the Senate is very organized and focused and has what it takes to produce the next Senate President,” he added.
Saraki is currently on trial over false declaration of assets according to News24.
