Senate President Bukola Saraki - JUST IN: Saraki reacts to APC's victory in Kwara Bye Elections

Nigeria’s Senate President and Godfather of Kwara Politics, Bukola Saraki has reacted to the APC’s victory in the just concluded Kwara state Bye Elections.

Saraki, in a statement on Saturday, described the Election as a battle between the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and Security agencies.

“The public should note that today’s #KwaraByElection was simply between PDP and security agents plus APC. This was due to the heavy deployment of police, soldiers and other security agents who gathered to support APC and harass PDP leaders and supporters.

“This is the first time that elections in Kwara State will be held under such charged, tensed and militarised conditions. We had INEC officials complaining about their own safety — and PDP supporters were brazenly intimidated, which resulted in low turn out of voters.

“It is important to reiterate that ahead of the 2019 elections, such open displays of intimidation are sending wrong signals. Our democracy is being undermined with this misuse of our nation’s security apparatus. #KwaraByElection”.

    Mr. Senate Presidate.
    In elections there are winners and there are losers. Don’t be a sore loser.
    This is democracy. Had you remained in APC you wouldn’t be complaining.
    So instead of nagging, just congratulate the winner.
    Be a leader not a whiner.
