The President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has told the leadership of the All Progressives Congress that he cannot be distracted by the party.
Saraki stated this in response to a statement on Wednesday by the APC, a party he dumped for the Peoples Democratic Party recently.
In the statement by the spokesman of the APC, Yekini Nabena, the party made series of allegations against Saraki.
Responding through his spokesman, Yusuph Olaniyonu, Saraki said: “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.”
