The North Central National Vice chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Ahmed Wambai, has said that any member of the party who renege on the decision of the party as regards the choice of the National Assembly leadership would face the consequences of their disloyalty.
Mr. Wambai, in an interview with newsmen in Lafia, urged the members of the party in the National Assembly to respect the decisions of the party at all times.
“In 2015 when Senator Saraki came through the back door without the input of the party and the executive, the president kept quiet but it later led to the retirement of some people in the arena.”
He, however, blamed the media for the hype over the issue of the leadership of the National Assembly.

“The media both electronic and print together with some people who are not members of the APC have been amplifying the matter making unnecessary funfair, this an APC,” he added.
He also denied the assertion that the APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, was teleguiding and forcing decisions on the party especially on the issue of the leadership of the national assembly.
According to him, Mr. Tinubu was quoted out of context over a statement that anybody who would not accept Femi Gbajabiamila as speaker should leave the party.
He added: “Tinubu is a respected party leader but he is not a member of NWC and the decision to zone positions was not initiated by Tinubu even the president only concurred with the position of the party, we have not been teleguided by Tinubu or the president it’s a purely party decision”
