PDP Asks Kwara Chapter to Disclaim Statement on Saraki's Wife

Date: 2015-07-27

Following the statement by the Kwara State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that its petition to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) led to the invitation of wife of the Senate President, Mrs. Toyin Saraki, the national headquarters has directed the state chapter to disclaim the statement.

A highly ranked member of the party, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, revealed that the national headquarters the party called immediately the story was published by major newspapers on their websites.

In a statement early today, the party's state publicity secretary, Rex Olawoye, was quoted as revealing how the petition the party submitted in early this year to the EFCC detailing how certain individuals in higher places during the tenure of Saraki as Kwara State governor milked the state dry was instrumental to the invitation of the former first lady of the state.

According to the petition, Mrs Saraki was fingered alongside one Mr. Ope Saraki, former special adviser to former governor Bukola Saraki on MDGs, Saraki's personal assistant, one Mr. Abdul Adama from Kogi State and a former commissioner for information, Mr. Tunji Morounfoye, in an alleged cesspool of corruption which he described as unprecedented in the history of Kwara state or any other state.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has been enmeshed in supremacy battle following the refusal of some of his federal lawmakers to abide by partyís directives in choosing leaders of the national assembly.

The PDP sees the crisis as a way of making an in-road in national limelight following his ouster from the federal government in the March 2015 presidential election.

ollowing the election of Senator Bukola Saraki, a former governor under the party, as president of the Senate through the support of the PDP senators, the party has not hidden its joy, as members of the party see that as a payback for what members of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN (now APC) did during the election of the House of Representatives election that produced Hon. Aminu Tambuwal as speaker.

The source said: "The party wants the crisis in the party to continue so that it can reclaim some of its members back into its fold. They are leaving no stone unturned in this bid and that was why the party ordered its federal lawmakers to team up with Sen Saraki and House speaker, Yakubu Dogara during the leadership election.

"Their projection is that sooner or later, Saraki and others would be forced to dump the APC or divide it and so that will give them the opportunity to redeem its structure. The party is not satisfied with the ongoing invitations of those that worked with its government. And they were shocked to see the statement by the PDP. To cut the story short, the Kwara PDP is not satisfied with the state of the nation.

Kwara State is no longer viable and they are doing everything possible to make sure that the man who underdeveloped the state is brought to book.

"Our national publicity secretary, Chief Olisah Metuh just called, expressing his displeasure over the statement. Why should he be controlling us. He ordered us to disregard the statement but we are not ready but we know they may go behind to react on our behalf and put our names to make it look like we backtracked," the source said.
