What Oshiomhole Said Over Saraki, Losing Senatorial Seat will Shock you



The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, yesterday celebrated the failure of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, in his re-election bid. He said Saraki’s loss in the election was a death knell and a precursor to the complete retirement of the Kwara born politician by his people.

Oshiomhole’s remarks came yesterday after the re-elected President Muhammadu Buhati, had in a statement, appealed to his supporters not to gloat or humiliate the opposition because of the APC’s victory at the presidential election.

Saraki lost to the Kwara Central Senatorial District candidate of the APC, Dr. Ibrahim Oloriegbe, in what election observers described as a major upset.

The president of the Senate was one of the major casualties of the 2019 general elections.

Speaking to State House Correspondents at the Presidential Villa, where he had gone to congratulate President Buhari after being issued with the certificate of return, Oshiomhole said even though the president had asked them to be magnanimous in victory, Saraki’s loss could not be ignored.
