Bukola Saraki, the senate president has asked that the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, withdraw his careless budget padding allegations. He challenged him to provide proof of what he is accusing him of.
Saraki in a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Yusuph Olaniyonu said, “Yesterday, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu released another of his now well expected quarterly vicious attack on the person of Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, the President of the Senate.
“In the statement, one could see the master of media spins getting ensnared in his own game as he struggled to extricate himself from the narratives about the contest for leadership positions in the Ninth National Assembly.
“The statement was another effort to sell a concocted narrative about the Eighth National Assembly and its leadership. In all the three budgets already passed by the National Assembly, we challenge Tinubu to make specific reference to where Dr. Saraki and the leadership of the National Assembly resorted to budget padding with pet projects as he alleged.
“Tinubu should be graceful enough to substantiate this allegation. We consider that allegation careless, irresponsible and callous. We therefore demand that he should withdraw it.”
