Oshiomhole Should Quit Politics – Senate President, Saraki Says

Senate President Bukola Saraki has said that the embattled National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has no moral ground to remain in politics.

He said this in reaction to allegations against Oshiomhole that he collected kickback from APC aspirants in the wake of primary elections that left the party in crisis.

Saraki, who recently emerged as national leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), described as a joke, a statement credited to Oshiomhole who asked him to resign his position as Senate president on moral grounds.

Speaking with journalists in Ilorin, yesterday, on the sidelines of the sixth remembrance prayer for his late father, Dr. Olusola Saraki, the Senate President said Oshiomhole had no locus standi to talk about morality in today’s Nigerian politics.
