Senators under the aegis of the Like Minds have expressed shock over the verbal attack of the former Kano State governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, on the president of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, asking him to exercise caution in his utterances.
Kwankwaso, had, in an interview, described the emergence Saraki as Senate president as a dangerous signal for the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, while warning that the Senate president should not use his ambition to destroy the All Progressive Congress (APC).
But The Like Minds senators, in a reaction to the interview by the group’s coordinator and spokesman, Senator Dino Melaye, cautioned Kwankwaso of incendiary utterances capable of destabilising the National Assembly and rubbishing the prevailing political tranquility in the country. They accused the former governor, who is one of their colleagues, of suffering from defeat syndrome, hence his resort to hate campaign and vile language for just no cause and that his opinions are that of a selfish man whose ambition has beclouded his sense of reasoning.
The senators of Like Minds also queried when Senator Kwankwanso became a friend of President Muhammadu Buhari, stating that: “We are surprised at the emergent of Kwankwanso as a friend of the president.”Melaye categorically said that the Senate presidency of Saraki would not constitute any threat to President Buhari’s administration, explaining that instead, the President is safer in the hands of Saraki as the president of the Senate.
