Saraki Is A Disgrace – Oshiomhole

National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has hit back at Senate President Bukola Saraki over his remark that “he (Oshiomhole) has no locus standi to talk about morality in Nigeria’s politics.”

Oshiomhole replying the senate president said in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Simon Ebegbulem that; “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.”
