PDP chieftain, Bode George in an interview with a Punch correspondent has explained why PDP voted for Saraki to emerge the senate president and also explained the crisis rocking PDP Lagos saying Obanikoro is the one behind it.
Speaking on Saraki, the reporter asked; When the election for the Senate President took place, the PDP had about 49 senators in the chamber while the APC had about eight. Why didn’t the PDP gun for the position of Senate President?
It is not good to get too greedy. We respect democracy a lot in the PDP. We helped to ensure democracy for 16 years through zoning. The PDP would have lost out if we tried to gun for the senate presidency. Remember that APC still has the larger number of senators. Thus, we decided to give it to Saraki, who we trust because he is our former member. Also, what we did ensured balance such that Tinubu’s boys would never have the upper hand. What happened was good for our democracy.
