Bola Tinubu, the former Governor of Lagos State and APC Chieftain who spoke at a National Consultative Forum themed: “Nigeria on the right track” organised by the National Committee of Buhari Support Groups, stated that Senate President Bukola Saraki is not honest.
Daily Trust reported that Tinubu who lamented that the former Kwara State Governor used the APC to give a lifeline to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said Saraki was not honest and sold APC’s mandate for a pot of porridge.
He stated that after using the APC to win election in 2015, “Saraki used our mandate to give lifeline to the opposition. Leadership is about character.
“He left PDP, joined us, got elected and sold our mandate for a pot of porridge. God is honest.”
This is not the first time the former Governor of Lagos State will be calling out the Senate President. Few months ago, Dr. Bukola Saraki, took a swipe at All Progressives Congress, APC Stalwart, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for accusing him that he dumped the party for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP because he wanted automatic ticket and sharing of the national wealth, saying that the former Lagos State governor was only engaging in rhetorics.
The Senate President accused Tinubu of fighting him because in 2014, him and other leaders of the party vehemently opposed to plans by the former governor to force the APC to accept the Muslim-Muslim ticket arrangement which was to be foisted on the party for the 2015 polls, adding that he took the bull by the horns and told him that in the interest of the country, he should accept the need for the party to present a balanced ticket for the 2015 General Elections in terms of religion and geo-political zones.
