APC: Nigerians watching how Buhari will handle allegations against Oshiomhole – Saraki

Abubakar Bukola Saraki
Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki has stated that Nigerians are eagerly watching how President Muhammadu Buhari will handle the allegations of bribery levelled against the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Adams Oshiomhole.

Oshiomhole was accused of collecting bribe from some of the aspirants during the just-concluded primary elections of the party.

The party chairman had since denied the allegation, claiming that his meeting with the Department of State Services, DSS, was a mere routine conversation that held in the interest of national security.

However, the Senate President in a statement by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Yusuph Olaniyonu, also described the threat by the former Edo State Governor to sue him over his statement 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 moralty or fight against corruption.
