I Am Not A Betrayer!!! I Worked Sleepless Nights To Ensure Buhari Became President – Saraki Blasts Cheap Critics, Tenders Evidence

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has on Wednesday, denied media reports, that he stood against the emergence of General Muhammadu Buhari, as the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential flag bearer, prior to the 2015 general elections.

The Senate President, through his Spokesman, Yusuph Olaniyonu, was reacting to an article published by a top magazine, known as African Confidential.

The article titled: ‘Ambitious Men’, suggested that Saraki, was one of those who stood against President Muhammadu Buhari.

The article also mentioned that Saraki has retained London Communications Consultants, Aequitas, to help launder his image.

In a swift reaction however, Saraki through his Media Aide, Olaniyonu, debunked the story, saying: “Dr Saraki did not contest the last Presidential primaries of the All Progressives Congress.

“Dr. Saraki publicly announced in a statement in Ilorin, on October 12, 2014, that he would not contest against Major General Muhammadu Buhari (Rtd), who was then an aspirant, because “some of us need to make sacrifices and be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem of the party.

“He then declared that he would support the candidacy of the Retired General. Dr. Saraki was one of the people who worked tirelessly, to ensure General Buhari won the APC ticket, and the general election”, Olaniyonu wrote.

He also said Saraki did not retain the services of Aequitas, as contained in the article.

“He formerly engaged Aequitas for strategic policy services, while he was Governor of Kwara State, and Chair of the Nigeria Governors Forum, and at the initial stage of his period as Senate President. He no longer retains the services of Aequitas, effective from January 1, 2017”, he noted.

Olaniyonu said Saraki’s interest now, is to reform the Senate, and make it an institution whose impact and relevance is felt and appreciated by the generality of the people. He said his boss has pledged his full support for, and commitment to the success of the administration of  Buhari.
