Emerging report indicates that the Chieftains of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, are afraid of the possibility of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, emerging as the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
This was made known on Wednesday, in a statement by Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Special Adviser (Media and Publicity) to Senate President.
The statement reads:
The Senate President will not be distracted by the antics of an upstart who lives in Abuja, but waits to sign press statements composed for him from Lagos. When his masters show their face, we will debate all the issues they have raised, and the ones they may wish to even concoct.
Dr. Saraki does not have any credibility issues, except the ones concocted by these putative demagogues to whom the Senate President has become a nightmare.
One should ask, what is APC’s business with an Aspirant of another party? The truth is APC is scared stiff of the possibility of a Saraki candidacy.
Fortunately, they have no role in deciding that.
Meanwhile, Mr. Yekinni Nabena, should know by now that many people in the Media, believe he is a robot, and has no face.
Here is an opportunity for him to come out of his hiding, and come on a National Television, to debate all the issues he has raised, with one of the Aides of the Senate President.
We hope he will take up this challenge and stop behaving like a masquerade. He is free to choose any independent TV station of his choice.
