Recall that Saraki slammed Oshiomhole, accused him of collecting bribe during APC primaries.(Read HERE)
Simon Ebegbulem, the Chief Press Secretary to the national chairman, today in a statement said “the unwarranted attack on the character of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki is pathetic and an irresponsible resort to petty politics”.
According to the statement,
“Saraki, a usurper of and pretender to the position of senate president, had no moral ground to call for the resignation of the national chairman”. Oshiomhole added 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.
