APC just wants to rubbish my name – Saraki
Senate President, Bukola Saraki said that he cannot yield to the plan of the the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to drag him to the gutter.
Saraki stated this in reaction to the claim of the National Working Committee (NWC) of APC which described alleged Senate President’s action during the blockade of the National Assembly by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) as treasonable.
Saraki in a statement by his Special Adviser Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu said:
“These people (Members of National Working Committee of APC) are in the gutter. All they want to do is to drag people to their own level. We can’t join them in that gutter. It is also unfortunate that such an allegation would come from a ruling party.
“Nigeria is unfortunate to have characters (NWC members) like that presiding over a ruling party. It is very clear why Nigeria is where it is right now. With such people in office, a country like Nigeria cannot move forward.”
