Removal threat forced Saraki to abandon Hajj trip

But for the threat by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and the leadership of the party, to remove the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, from office, the former governor of Kwara State would have been in the holy city of Mecca by now, performing the last pillar of Islam, Hajj.

Indications to this effect emerged during the week when checks by Saturday Telegraph revealed that some of those sponsored by Senator Saraki are already in Saudi Arabia, awaiting the arrival of their sponsor.

Among the pilgrims is a female politician, who spoke with one of our correspondents from Saudi Arabia, explaining that they were shocked to learn that the man who facilitated their trip could no longer join them as expected.
