Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki has on Wednesday hit out at the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, saying that he has lost moral right to remain in politics.
Speaking with journalists in Ilorin during the sixth remembrance prayer for his father, Saraki said Oshiomhole has ‘no locus standi to talk about morality in today’s Nigeria’s politics.
“I think Oshiomhole has no locus standi to talk about morality. He is somebody who is said to be collecting not even naira but dollars from candidates and he is being accused by his party’s aspirants and governors. I don’t think he has any moral ground, even to continue to be in politics, not to talk of being a chairman of a party.
“You will recall Oyegun was never accused of something like this. I have left that party. I’m sure the President, based on his integrity, knows the right thing to do. So, on moral ground, he (Oshiomhole) cannot speak.”
The Chief Press Secretary to Oshiomhole, Mr. Simon Ebegbulem, could not be reached for comments.
He neither picked the calls placed to his telephone nor responded to a text message.
