Adams Oshiomole, the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress(APC) has revealed that being at the helms of affairs when former Senate President Bukola Saraki was ousted still remains one of his greatest political achievement so far.
According to Oshiomole who made this known while fielding questions from newsmen in Abuja, he said he told his Party kinsmen prior to the election that if Saraki resists removal, then he would be uprooted.
In his own words:
“Remember I was saying that Saraki must be removed, people would say how would you do it? I said if he resists removal, then we would uproot.
“We went to Kwara, we did ‘otoge’ (Enough is Enough). We uprooted Saraki and you cannot commend me for this? Do you know who Saraki is? If you are talking of the 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 a 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 member 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 proverbial) lizard. I will praise myself if you correspondents don’t praise me.”
