The crisis was further deepened by Saraki’s subsequent disregard of his party in nominating party-chosen candidates to principal offices in the senate. The follow up by the speaker of the House of Representatives in toeing the line of the senate president which resulted in the show of shame by the APC law makers last week.
One could have thought that maturity and wisdom could have played a major in curbing the crisis rocking the APC, but from every indication, it seems that these factors have not been employed by the APC big wigs in arriving at a solution, instead it looks and feels that both the power blocs of the senate president and that of the party leader has declared an all out war on each other.
In the game of politics, both Tinubu and Saraki are not men that one can underestimate, for both men have their strong points and are not new to the game. Both have a record of being political savvy and knowing their game very well. Tinubu is a man that is believed to posses the Midas touch and every political move he makes always favors him and goes according to his plan, but political analysts across the nation believe that he has met his match in the game.
