Speaking while briefing journalists at the end of Monday’s meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, took a swipe at the Senate President Bukola Saraki over last Saturday’s APC victory in Kwara state bye-election.
According to the former governor of Edo state who has been in a war of words with Saraki since the later’s defection to PDP, come February 2019, the political career of Senate President will be buried never to rise again.
He said; “For me even more outstanding is the humiliating defeat Saraki suffered in the hands of Kwara people who are determined to dismantle the saraki failed attempt to install his own variance of a political culture of which he is the only constant decimal.
“I think the good people of kwara state have dealt him a big blow as the proclaim leader of the opposition PDP and he has had to lead the campaigns to so many other places.”
He mocked Saraki for being unable to help his party win the bye-election despite being the leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“Now here is a native doctor who was busy going to other states now unable to heal his own people. That defeat in kwara state as far as we are concerned particularly by person he did not put in place to stand election means a lot to us.
“We are not going to accept a Nigerian variant where a minority party preside over the affairs of the national assembly whether as dictated by Bukola Saraki as as represented by Yakubu Dogara in the House of Representatives of the PDP because it is not right.
“In his own case what the people of Kwara have done to him is that they are going to politically bury him come February next year and he has seen the first warning .I am sure Saraki would be politically retired by the good people of Kwara that he has mismanaged their economic and political rights over the years.
“So I am very excited about that and we think that this is something worth celebrating and we took time to celebrate it today.”
He said since the inception of the national working committee of the APC which he heads, the party has not lost any major election.
He said: “We reviewed the recent elections and we are proud to be able to say that since the new national working committee was elected on the 24th of June 2018, since I came on board along with my brothers and sisters of NWC, we are proud that we have not lost any major election.
“We have done rerun election in Katsina and we have won twice. We did another one Saturday and we won again. We had a rerun in Bauchi for senate, we won.
“But even more outstanding for me and APC is the humiliating defeat that Senator Bukola Saraki suffered in the hands of Kwara people who are determined to dismantle his failed attempt to install his own variants of a political culture in which he is the only constant decimal.”
