The Chairman, Senate Committee on Petroleum (Downstream), Senator Kabiru Marafa (APC-Zamfara Central) has said he stopped criticising Senate President Bukola Saraki because President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) directed him to.

Marafa, who was Saraki’s major critic in the Upper Chamber, until he was made the chairman of the petroleum committee, said he had nothing personal against the senate president.

Reacting to a statement by the Coalition of Northern Youth Organisations (CNYO), tagged ‘The Enemy Within: Unveiling the True Character of Senator Kabiru Marafa’, he said nobody can use him to undermine President Buhari’s administration.

“I did not fight Bukola Saraki because he is Saraki; I fought because my party said I should fight, and when my party said I should stop, I stopped. The decision to end all these hostilities was taken by APC and President Buhari himself,” he said.

Dispelling a report that he wanted to make Saraki the acting president when Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe (PDP, Abia) on July 4, he said there was nowhere in the Constitution that said the acting president can be nominated by the National Assembly.
