Disunited Nigeria: Saraki, Dogara absent at Independence Day Parade

The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, were on Monday absent at a parade organised to commemorate Nigeria’s 58th Independence Day anniversary.

The strictly military event held at the Eagles Square, Abuja was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

Recall that Saraki and Dogara recently defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.

Also in attendance at the parade was the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo was also absent at the event attended by two former military leaders: Gen. Yakubu Gowon and Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar.

While Mr Saraki is one of the aspirants to the office of president in the 2019 election, Mr Dogara is seeking re-election as a member of the House of Representatives.
