Unic Press UK: All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole has threatened to institute a legal action against the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, over comments that the APC chair had, through bribery, enriched himself during the recently conducted APC primary elections.
In a statement the Chief Press Secretary to the APC National Chairman, Simon Ebegbulem said:
“. . . 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.”
Answering questions put to him by journalists on Wednesday in Ilorin, Saraki said:
“I think Oshiomhole has no locus standi to talk about morality today. Oshiomhole is somebody, who is said to have been collecting not even naira but dollars from candidates and he is being accused by his candidates and Governors. I don’t think he has any moral ground, even to continue to be in politics not to talk about being a Chairman of a party.”
