Saraki and 10 others shun Meeting wih Mark

 Former Kwara State Governor, Bukola Saraki

Former Kwara State Governor  Bukola Saraki and 10 other  Peoples Democratic Party senators,  who  defected  to the All Progressives Congress,   twice  shunned  their scheduled   meeting with Senate President  David Mark on Monday.

The other senators are    Adamu Abdulahi, Shaba Lafiagi, Ibrahim Gobir, Aisha Al-Hassan, Magnus Abe, Wilson Ake, Jibrilla   Bindowo,  Danjuma Goje, Ali Ndume and Umar Dahiru.

 The Senate President had arrived  in his office at about 10am, which was the initial time for the meeting   and waited till 2.05pm before he left for his residence when it was obvious that the aggrieved senators would not turn up.

 Although some of the senators attributed their absence to  communication gap,  The PUNCH  gathered that they deliberately stayed away.

 One of  Mark’s aides,  who craved anonymity, also confirmed the  10am meeting,  but said it was rescheduled for the residence of his boss  on Monday evening.

 However ,one of the aggrieved senators,  who pleaded anonymity, said they did not deliberately shun the morning meeting with the Senate President.

 He said they were  not properly briefed about the time and venue of the meeting.

 The senate president and few principal officers, who had gathered at his official residence in the Apo Legislative Quarters,  were disappointed again when none of the aggrieved senators came for the evening meeting.
