The All Progressives Congress in Kwara State (APC), has tackled the spokesman of Lagos chapter of the party, Mr Joe Igbokwe over his comments on the trial of the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki.
The party in a statement by its state publicity secretary, Alh. Sulyman Buhari described as unfortunate “a recent press statement issued by the Publicity Secretary of the Lagos State chapter of our party, Mr Joe Igbokwe, wherein he claimed “APC does not want Bukola Saraki as the Senate President”. It described Igbokwe as someone on a mission to cause confusion within the APC family in the country going by his utterances.
“?We wish to strongly condemn the statement as unacceptable .It should also be noted that Mr Igbokwe’s statement doesn’t represent the views of members of our party across the country.
“For anyone who was tempted to doubt our claim that the case against the Senate President is not anti-corruption- driven case but a politically-motivated prosecution aimed at undermining the person and the office of the Senate President, it is now clearer.
“Mr Igbokwe’s recent vituperation against the person and the office of the Senate President is part of the script designed by desperate politicians to pull down the Senate President at all costs.
?”Again, we wish to unequivocally and categorically condemn, reject and dismiss the call for the resignation of Senate President Bukola Saraki by sponsored faceless groups,” it stated.
