The All Progressives Congress has described the Presidential ambition of Senate President as a huge joke.
The party’s Ag. National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena said in a press release that Saraki’s antecedents do not fit into such sacrosanct positions.
Nabena went memory lane by unleashing Saraki’s time as Governor of Kwara State as he queried his projects and performances in his 8 years as Governor.
“Saraki’s presidential aspiration is a huge joke and should not be taken seriously,” APC said in statement released Wednesday and signed by Yekini Nabena, the party’s spokesman.
“By virtue of Saraki’s antecedents, he is an abysmal failure and is totally incompetent to offer himself as a candidate for leadership of Nigeria. Saraki was a two-term Governor of Kwara State and Senate President in the last three years. What were his performance records in these two assignments? As Kwara State Governor, was his Shonga Agricultural Programme not a white elephant project in which hundreds of millions of State funds was sunk into?
“The infrastructure, particularly roads network in Kwara State in which the present administration remains under his tight grip and political machinations long after leaving office, remains deplorable while state resources is mismanaged through corrupt enrichment. A Presidential aspirant who promises to create jobs and turn around the economy at the national level, must have done so in a state he served as Governor for eight years. We challenge Saraki to give the nation his scorecard as a Kwara State.”
Saraki was also accused of engage in budget padding and superintending over the forceful existence of the electoral act.
