Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki has advised the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC to retire from politics.
Speaking in Ilorin on Wednesday, Saraki advised Oshiomhole to leave politics adding that based on the allegations levelled against him, he had no right to remain the chairman of the APC.
It will be recalled that the Department of State Services (DSS) had detained Oshiomhole after some APC governors alleged that he received bribes during the party’s primary elections across the country.
In Saraki’s words;
“Oshiomhole has no locus standi to talk about morality in today’s Nigeria’s politics. That must be a joke coming from Oshiomhole talking about moral ground.
Oshiomhole is somebody who has been told to have been collecting not even naira but dollars from candidates and he is being accused by his party’s aspirants and governors.
I don’t think he has any moral ground, even to continue to be in politics not to talk about being a chairman of a party.
I remember in those days even Oyegun, they never accused him of something like this. I have left that party. I’m sure the president, based on integrity, knows the right thing to do. So, on moral ground, he cannot speak on moral ground.”
