Prof. Itse Sagay causing more problems for Buhari – APC

by on April 6, 2017
The ruling All Pro­gressives Congress (APC) yesterday came out hard on the Chairman of the Presi­dential Committee on Anti-Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN) warning that his utterances had been causing more problems for the Presi­dent on the lingering cri­sis with the Legislature.
APC has commenced its mediation role in the crisis with visits to the National Assembly.
The party warned both Sagay and other appoin­tees of President Buhari to be mindful of their comments and utter­ances on issues between the Legislature and the Presidency.
It noted that recent comments from them have aggravatied the cri­sis rather than reducing the tension in the polity.
In a statement is­sued on Wednesday by APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bo­laji Abdulahi, the party urged all government appointees to stop mak­ing statements that may worsen the relationship between the two arms of government and derail the party’s peace efforts.
The party specifically called on Prof. Sagay to exercise restraint and de­sist from making utter­ances that may be mis­construed as an attack on the National Assembly.
Sagay had in recent statement boasted that rejected Acting Chair­man of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Magu, would continue to be in office as appointed by Buhari, whether the Sen­ate confirmed him or not.
He also slammed the Senate for extending an invitation to him to ap­pear before it and warned the Senate to withdraw it.
The party, which ac­knowledged the fatherly role being played by the President to resolve the issues with the National Assembly, by setting up a committee led by Vice President Yemi Osin­bajo, urged both parties to play to the rule and embrace the emerging peace.
