The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Kwara State chapter, has alleged that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, is determined to render the Senate President, Bukola Saraki “politically naked.”
The party’s state chairman, Iyiola Oyedepo, who made the statement on Monday while speaking with some party leaders in Ilorin, the state capital alleged also that Saraki now craves for his former party, the PDP, where he served eight years as governor.
According to Iyiola Oyedepo, “The senate president is about to be made naked by the APC. APC is in disarray and he is about to be made politically naked.
“He is looking for a shelter in case the broom sweeps him away; is this the time to allow him to take refuge under the umbrella? The mistake of 2003 must not be allowed to repeat itself in 2016.”
“All the candidates of the party ran their elections the way they wanted with very scanty reference to the party executives at all levels.
“We did not handle campaign funds of the candidates and we were not involved in the logistical operations of the campaign.
“Where did we go wrong on the issue of our failure in the elections? After the primaries, some aspirants walked away, some betrayed the party’s candidates by working for our main opposition.
“Let anybody name any member of this executive that did just that. Even those that embezzled campaign or election funds are the loudest about dissolution of the executive.
“We have put together the state executive that was then divided by individual commitment to aspirants; the executive is now properly united and focused,” he added.
