Senate President Bukola Saraki is currently being ‘roasted’ on social media, after an audio emerged, of him reeling out why he left President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The senate President, while addressing a crowd of his supporters in Kwara state recently, revealed how he funded Buhari’s campaign in 2015 with billions of Naira, with the hope of getting juicy appointment for his people, but was dumped soon after the election was won.
Many Nigerian Twitter users have expressed their disappointment about Saraki, over the content of the audio.

Yes Saraki left APC bc of his pockets. What is surprising here is that some of you are acting surprised. It is not a revelation. Stealing public funds is a way of life for him and his allies. They must have unfettered access to the Nation's Treasury else there won't be peace.

Kwara State, you might want to ask Saraki where he got the 10 billion Naira he claimed he gave to 30 states. In expectation of “sharing.”
Thank you PMB for saying “not on my watch”

God forbids Nigerians bequeath their future into the hands of these uber-desperate and crooked Atiku, Saraki and their itchy fingers crew in the name of the crying deception called "GetNigeriaWorkingAgain

One one hand, they criticise #TraderMoni that gives N10K loans to petty traders. On the other, they defend Saraki's audio complaining about patronage not reaching him to "share to the boys", claiming that is how the game is played.

The wickedness in the heart of men. Saraki invested over one billion naira in 2015 elections in return for a juicy post but couldn't provide basic amenities in his state.

The N300m-N400m Saraki spent in 30 states to "install" Buhari into Aso Rock would have created another 100,000 jobs for Kwarans but Mesujamba "loved" Buhari more. pic.twitter.com/Np6lqQ9jmN

Bukola Saraki audio….. long story short President Kwarapshun’s 2015 was funded by him (saraki) when kwarapshun won, he played Sakari fast one & he didn’t give him appointment for his crew in Kwara. The rest is him playing some gullible young crowd he’s not part of the problem. pic.twitter.com/E04NcZjUAb

Saraki is not fighting for Kwara State people to get Roads, Rail, Industries, or Hospitals. He's fighting for his co-criminals to get appointment, award bogus contracts, collect 100% payment, abandon them as usual, and share the money among political thugs. https://t.co/ezluwF1v0c

I am disappointed in @bukolasaraki. Listening to that 33mims audio recording of his meeting is disgraceful and distasteful.
What!!! Number 3 man of the nation with that mentality. Now I know why it is difficult to move forward as a Nation.
