The All Progressives Congress has again knocked the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, saying his presidential desire is an immense joke.
The acting National Publicity Secretary of the gathering, Yekini Nabena, said this in an announcement in Abuja, on Wednesday.
The party said in spite of the fact that it was the privilege of each Nigerian subject to seek to be President of the nation, it was worried about issues of uprightness, ability and capacity to manage the issues of the nation.
The APC said it was not ignorant of reports that Saraki’s presidential assertion was a piece of a contrivance to occupy consideration from issues, for example, the strain to reconvene the National Assembly.
The announcement noted that Saraki’s two-term residency as Governor of Kwara State was confirm enough to demonstrate the stuff he was made of.
It read to a limited extent,
By virtue of Saraki’s antecedents, he is an abysmal failure and is totally incompetent to offer himself as a candidate for the leadership of Nigeria.
“Saraki was a two-term Governor of Kwara State and Senate President in the last three years. What were his performance records in these two assignments? As Kwara State Governor, was his Shonga Agricultural Programme not a white elephant project in which hundreds of millions of state funds was sunk into?
“The infrastructure, particularly roads network in Kwara State in which the present administration remains under his tight grip and political machinations long after leaving office, remains deplorable while state resources is mismanaged through corrupt enrichment.”
Be that as it may, responding, Saraki upbraided the APC and its National Publicity Secretary for remarking on his presidential race on the stage of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Saraki, in an announcement issued on Wednesday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Yusuph Olaniyonu, expressed that he didn’t have a believability issue as charged by the APC’s representative.
The announcement read,“The Senate President will not be distracted by the antics of an upstart who lives in Abuja but waits to sign press statements composed for him from Lagos. When his masters show their face, we will debate all the issues they have raised and the ones they may wish to even concoct.”
