Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, says he deserves some commendation from the State House press correspondents for “uprooting” former Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
Oshiomhole, who was at the State House on Monday, July 29, for a meeting with President Muhamamdu Buhari, was faced by newsmen with several questions.
The Chairman was very happy saying one of his greatest achievements is Saraki’s eviction from senate and government.
He boasted that under his leadership, he successfully uprooted the former Senate President and his cronies, in Kwara.
“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 OTOGE(Enough is Enough), we uprooted Saraki and you cannot commend me for this? You know who Saraki is? If you are talking of the smartest political player, seasoned smart guy, he is,” he said.
The former Edo state governor added:
“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.”
Therefore, he declared himself smarter than Saraki politically, for achieving that.
“But for every smartness he has, I have a superior smartness. At the end of the day who won?” he declared.
Oshiomhole went ahead to praise himself describing himself as a lizard, who appreciate his self-act.
“And you can’t commend me for that, If you don’t, then I will be like lizard, I will praise myself if you State House correspondents don’t praise me,” he concluded.
