Saraki asking Oshiomhole to resign is ridiculous, says Razak


Senate President Bukola Saraki’s call on the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, to resign his position over bribery allegations has been condemned by a chieftain of the party in Lagos State, Lanre Razak.

The former commissioner for public transportation in Lagos said that Saraki lacks the moral right to call for Oshiomhole’s resignation since he had ignored repeated calls on him by well-meaning Nigerians to step down during his various travails, including corruption trials at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

Razak, who is the Balogun General of Epe, insisted that Saraki’s performance as the chairman of the 8th National Assembly fell short of the expectations of most Nigerians.

Oshiomhole, he argued, was repositioning APC to ensure its victory in 2019.

“(Saraki) is a bad marketer marketing a bad product for next year’s general election. One had expected him to spend more time rebranding his Peoples democratic Party (PDP) that destroyed Nigeria for 16 years, rather running down a man of God who had worked assiduously to strengthen our great party and placed it on the path of honour. I am very confident that he and his co-travellers will fail woefully in their devilish plot to run down Comrade Oshiomhole.”

Razak cited the late passage of the 2018 federal budget by the Senate and the House of Representatives in June to prove that the lawmakers were not rising up to the national interest.
