The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has warned journalists to commend him for uprooting the former Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki from every sphere of influence in Kwara State which has made him politically redundant.
Oshiomhole, who described Saraki as the “smartest political player and seasoned smart guy”, however, boasted to have superior smartness.
The APC National Leader, while chatting with State House correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, said: “Remember I was saying that Saraki must be removed, people would say how would I do it? I said okay if he resists removal, then we would uproot. We went to Kwara, we did Oto ge, we uprooted Saraki, and you cannot commend me for this? You know who Saraki is?
“If you are talking of the most smartest political player, seasoned smart guy, he is. But for every smartness he has, I have a superior smartness. At the end of the day who won? As a senate president, we uprooted him as senator, we uprooted his nominee for governor, and senators, we put our own.
“Today, he doesn’t have one senator in Kwara, he doesn’t have one House of Representatives in Kwara. Everything in Kwara is APC and you can’t commend me for that? If you don’t, then I will be like the lizard – I will praise myself if you State House Correspondents don’t praise me.”
