Senate President Bukola Saraki says the All Progressives Congress (APC) national chaiurman, Adams Oshimhole, has plunged the party into a civil war.
He said as a result of this, the party was now wallowing in confusion.
Saraki was reacting to the ruling party’s mockery of his performance at the convention of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Saraki had placed a distant third behind Aminu Tambuwal, Governor of Sokoto Sate, and former vice president Atiku Abubakar who clinched the PDP ticket.
Yekini Nabena, acting spokesman of the APC, had said senators should reject Saraki the same way the delegates at the convention did.
But Saraki wondered why Nabena and the APC were always concerned about the developments in the PDP.
He said the “civil war” Nabena and Oshiomhole ignited in their party has left it “wallowing in confusion”.
“We have noted the irresponsible statement issued by the APC spokesman, Yekini Nabena. We know that he and the leadership of the APC are always incensed and disturbed at the mere hearing of the name, Saraki,” he said in a statement which Yusuph Olaniyonu, his spokesman, issued on his behalf.
“However, we believe that with the ‘civil war’ that Adams Oshiomhole and Yekini Nabena have ignited in the APC and the very low level that they have dragged the party, in such manner that the ruling party is wallowing in confusion and disorganization, they have too much to pre-occupy them than to be poking their noses in what happens to Saraki or the APC.”
