Oshiomole Angry over Saraki’s Allegation

The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has stated the Senate President, Bukola Saraki is a shame to Nigeria’s democracy.

He said this in a declaration signed and issued on Thursday to reporters in Abuja by means of his Chief Press Secretary, Simon Ebegbulem.

Oshiomhole spoke in reaction to a statement credited to   that the APC chairman had allegations of bribe-taking from some governors from his party placing on his neck.

He said it become pathetic and irresponsible that the Senate president might inn to ‘petty politics’.

He brought that Saraki had no ethical ground to call for the resignation of the countrywide chairman.

The APC chairman threatened to sue Saraki if he did not provide evidence that he definitely took bribes from aspirants.

The statement reads: “It is sad that Saraki, who just woke up from slumber occasioned by his crushing defeat at the Port Harcourt presidential primary election of his party, could degenerate to such a low level.

“It is equally sad, but not unexpected, that Saraki, who is politically drowning, would make such libelous comments against the national chairman of the APC. And I challenge Saraki to mention one name of an aspirant that gave money to the National Chairman or we file a legal action against him.

“Whereas, the basis on which he made those comments was tenuous and unjustifiable, it is on record that Saraki has been in the eye of investigations by the EFCC and the ICPC for sundry cases of corruption.

“That is the same man that has taken it upon himself to question Comrade Oshiomhole’s credibility.

“We challenge him to mention one person who has claimed that he gave money to Oshiomhole to influence him and the decision of the party’s national working committee (NWC) in the just-concluded primary elections.

‘We insist that Saraki with his kind of prebendal politics is nothing but a monumental disgrace to the nation’s democracy.”
