The Senate President Bukola Saraki has been asked by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC to mention one aspirant that gave him money in order to gain an advantage at the party primaries.
Speaking with journalists in Ilorin during the sixth remembrance prayer for his father, Senator Saraki, a former Governor of Kwara State, explained that Comrade Oshiomhole, the chairman of the All Progressives Congress does not have any moral ground to continue to be in politics.
Senator Saraki, who has since joined the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP from the APC said Comrade Oshiomhole should leave politics because he is “somebody who has been told to have been collecting not even naira but dollars from candidates and he is being accused by his party’s aspirants and governors.”
Adams Oshiomhole, who responded to the comment via a statement issued through Simon Egbebulem, his media aide, said if Senator Saraki refused “to mention one name of an aspirant that gave money,” we will “file a legal action against him.”
