The federal government on Wednesday said the defection of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is a great relief to the party.
The government said Saraki was always an opposition in the ruling party, who used his position as Senate President to frustrate the workings of the government.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who stated this while briefing State House correspondents after the weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC), presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Villa, said Saraki had become the greatest obstacle to the government.
The minister said APC stands to lose nothing with the defection of Saraki and his loyalists adding that the party in his native Kwara State will grow stronger with the exit.
