Nigeria's Senate president Bukola Saraki said on Tuesday that he was leaving President Muhammadu Buhari's ruling party.

"I wish to inform Nigerians that, after extensive consultations, I have decided to take my leave of the All Progressives Congress (APC)," said Saraki, the third most senior politician in Nigeria, on his Twitter feed.

Last week, following a raft of defections from the party, he told Reuters that there was a very high chance that he would leave the party.
