The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Adams Oshiomole has threatened to sue Senate President Dr. Bukola Saraki if he fails to mention the names of APC party members who reportedly bribed him to serve their cause.
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Simon Ebegbulem, Oshiomole denied the accusation that he’s collecting money from party members to help boost their ambition, adding that he challenge Saraki to mention one person claimed he gave money to him. His statement reads:
“It is sad that Saraki, who just woke up from slumber occasioned by his crushing defeat at the Port Harcourt presidential primary of his party, could degenerate to such a low level.
“It is equally sad, but not unexpected, that Saraki, who is politically drowning, would make such libelous comments against the national chairman of the APC. And 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 in the just-concluded primary elections.”
