Senate President Bukola Saraki on Wednesday said there is no crisis in the Senate over the removal of Senator Ali Ndume as Senate Leader.


The All Progressives Congress (APC) caucus in the Senate in a letter to the Senate President on Tuesday had replaced Ndume with Senator Ahmed Lawan.


Speaking with State House correspondents after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, Saraki said the institution is bigger than every senator.


He said: “There is no crisis in the National Assembly, things like this do happen and as you said the institution is bigger than everybody and I am sure that he and everybody else will always work for the interest of the institution and for the interest of the country. Everything is calm, solid and fine.”

Reminded of Ndume’s remark that he knew nothing about it, Saraki added: “I am sure you have not read his statement today. He has made a different statement today.”


Asked to react to belief in some quarters that Ndume was sacrificed, he laughed and said: “Do I look like someone that does things like that?”


On the purpose of his visit to the Villa, Saraki said: “You know getting the government going, getting the National Assembly moving and as you know there is nothing more important to us now than the budget process and the work we need to do in those areas.”
