Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN) Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) has described federal lawmakers who defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as malaria parasites.
He said the lawmakers have been making the APC sick in the last three years.
Sagay told Daily Independent that he was shocked to note that Bukola Saraki, the Senate president had chosen to remain in the party, saying he doesn’t understand the kind of game he (Saraki) was trying to play.
“President Muhammadu Buhari is their main target. It is the presidency itself that they really wanted to bring down. What surprises me is the fact that their leader (Saraki) has left. I wonder what type of game he is playing.
“So, it is a strategic game, they planned it. They assumed that if they can re-enact what happened in 2014 in the movement from PDP to APC, then they will be able to come to power but they will find out that they should not just imitate without looking at the fundamentals.
“I regard them as moles in the APC who have created all the crises within the party. They have been the source of destruction, bitterness, disagreements and conflicts within the party. Their going away is like malaria fever leaving the body.
“They are like malaria parasites, which have made the APC such a sick party in the last three years. Now that they have gone, APC will fully recover itself and then march on to victory in 2019,” he said.
