Former governor of Nasarawa State, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has made a sensational claim about Senate President Dr. Bukola Saraki, saying the latter used to wish President Muhammadu Buhari death.
The duo are engulfed in public row and Saraki in a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, ripped apart Adamu saying, “Again, I restate that Senator Adamu is a deceptive, manipulative and desperate liar. He only says what suits him as the occasion demands. I urge people to check his contributions on the floor before the EFCC moved against him and his son and they will see that this is a latter day, selfish supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“We know what he was saying about the President and his administration and what should happen in 2019 during discussions with our colleagues, particularly former governors in the Senate.”
In response to the statement, Adamu who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development, denied claim that he ingratiated himself with Buhari on account of his alleged prosecution by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, so that he could be left off the hook.
The senator went on to accuse Saraki of wishing the President death while the latter was hospitalized abroad.
His word, “Saraki is just doing himself, he started the problem for himself. He started plotting to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari when he was sick. He thought that the President will not come back, unfortunately for him and fortunately for all of us, the President came back.”
