Saraki Dares Oshiomole,Challenges Buhari Over Alleged Million Dollars Primaries Bribe

Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has  promised to meet with the All Peoples Congress (APC) chairman, Adams Oshiomole in court should he carry out his threat  to sue him over his statement on the alleged bribery allegation made against the Chairman in respect of his party’s recently concluded primary elections.

Saraki also said  Nigerians are eagerly awaiting how President Muhammadu Buhari will handle the serious allegations of bribery levelled against the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over the conduct of the elections in the party.

In a statement by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Senate President described the threat by the former Edo State Governor to sue him over his statement that Oshiomhole ought to quit politics on moral grounds over the allegations against him, as an empty boast because he (Saraki) will be ready to meet him (Oshiomhole) in court.

“Nigerians are waiting to see how the President will handle the serious allegations against his party chairman. We expect the President with his anti-corruption campaign to institute thorough and transparent investigation into the allegations against his party chairman.

“The failure of the President to get to the root of the matter will finally destroy his ability and that of the party to continue to talk of any anti-graft battle. The President should let the investigation be thorough, open and transparent. This is no time for any cover-up”, he stated.

Saraki maintained that until the outcome of a thorough investigation is known to Nigerians and the APC chairman is cleared of the allegations against him, Oshiomhole is not on a firm ground to talk about morality or fight against corruption.
