Mr. Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has threatened to sue Dr. Bukola Saraki, the President of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, over his recent allegation against him.
According to Oshiomhole, he will sue Saraki if he fails to mention one aspirant from whom he allegedly received money from.
Saraki had in a statement in Kwara State told journalists that the APC Chairman has no moral grounds to remain in office following allegations of kickbacks he received from candidates during the APC primaries.
Consequently, the APC Chairman in his response to Saraki through his aide, noted that the Senate President’s statement against him was pathetic and irresponsible.
“It is sad that Saraki, who just woke up from slumber occasioned by his crushing defeat at the Port Harcourt presidential primary 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 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.”
