The trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki may result to some members of the APC who are loyal to him leaving the APC en masse. There is already a crack in the party as some people who support the Senate President are seeing this whole Code of Conduct Tribunal trial as a witch hunt, most especially the PDP members who left the PDP to join the APC and helped the party both financially and in ensuring their supporters voted to bring the APC to power. Some of these people are former governors who make up the New PDP that joined the APC and strengthened the party.
These group supporting Saraki have already shown their support by severally accompanying the senate president to court. NEWISSUES learned that the members of the New PDP who joined the APC after not agreeing with Goodlluck Jonathan on certain issues in the PDP are fully in support and behind Saraki. They are waiting to hear the outcome of the trial before they make their decisions.
