Senate President, Mr Bukola Saraki, has described a statement attacking him by All Progressives Congress (APC) as irresponsible.
APC in a statement on Tuesday by its publicity secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena, said Mr Saraki’s loss shows PDP delegates “were fed up with his political style.”
The ruling party has consistently called on Saraki to resign as senate president since his defection but the former Kwara State governor has dismissed such calls.
In response, Saraki in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Yusuph Olaniyonu, accused the ruling party of always being disturbed at the mention of his name.
“We have noted the irresponsible statement issued by APC spokesman, Nabena. We know that he and the leadership of APC are always incensed and disturbed at the mere hearing of the name, Saraki. It is also notable that Nabena and APC are always concerned about the developments in the opposition party, PDP.
“However, we believe that with the ‘civil war’ that Adams Oshiomhole and Yekinni Nabena have ignited in APC and the very low level that they have dragged the party, in such manner that the ruling party is wallowing in confusion and disorganization, they have too much to pre-occupy them than to be poking their noses in what happens to Saraki or PDP,” he said.
