Hon. Yakubu Dogara further buttresses our position the Saraki is ever ready to pursue his selfish interests over National Interest,”
Yekini Nabena, the acting National Publicity Secretary of the party statement read. “This is another brazen display of his penchant for abuse of powers and sabotage of government, however the cost and implication.
