Don’t push me over defection – Saraki

SARAKI - DON'T PUSH ME

“He refused to comment on what he will do over pressure by some of his followers to lead them out of the All Progressive Congress (APC). He only asked newsmen not to ‘worry’ or ‘push’ him over the matter.”

Layi Olanrewaju, Ilorin

Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, returned to the waiting hands of large crowd of supporters who welcome him to Ilorin, his hometown, yesterday, 10 days after the Supreme Court cleared him of allegations of false asset declaration instituted against him by the Federal Government.

As early as 6:35am, supporters of the senate president had besieged the Ilorin International Airport and adjoining surroundings to await his arrival. Motorists and other road users had hectic time on the Ilorin-Ogbomosho Road as Saraki’s supporters lined both sides of the road; with vehicles stretching for about five kilometers.

Although Saraki’s flight didn’t arrive until about 4.17pm, the supporters kept themselves alive with dance and music from various live bands. He was accompanied on the flight by Speaker of the state’s House of Assembly, Dr. Ali Ahmad, Senator Rafiu Ibrahim, former speaker of the state assembly and chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Judiciary, Razaq Atunwa as well as former presidential spokesman, Dr. Doyin Okupe.

Speaking with newsmen, thereafter, Saraki described his three-year trial as tough but expressed satisfaction that his followers never doubted his innocence as he had told them severally. But, he refused to comment on what he will do over pressure by some of his followers to lead them out of the All Progressive Congress (APC). He only asked newsmen not to ‘worry’ or ‘push’ him over the matter.

“As I said, don’t worry, don’t push me, I will call at a time and I will tell Nigerians,” said Saraki.

On his trial and the home visit, he said: “It’s been a long journey for all my own people in the state, and we thank the Almighty God for this. I want to thank all of them who did not at any time waver. They believed in my innocence and supported me throughout those three very tough years and it was a great feeling for all of us.

“It is my first homecoming; to thank them for all the support they have given me and the victory and for the fact that the truth prevailed and justice was done. This visit is thank the people for the support they have given for years.

“As I always say, time will come for everything, a time will come I will tell people where I am, what I’m doing. For now, it is just to thank the people of the state because the last three years have been tough and they are still committed and remain and I have to appreciate that. I appreciate that.”

Saraki can decamp to any party and still swim out successful during next year's election. He has d cunningness, strategy and loyal fan base to help him overcome all obstacles, but for Dino, he needs to learn the game instead of using social media to deceive himself.

He may have lots of sympathizers on social media but what brings success is a strong fan base and loyal supporters on ground.

Dino is always riding on popularity of others.

He used the popularity of the PDP then and later used same of APC to defeat Adeyemi.

Watch how 2019 will look like for him.

He has susceptible loyal fans and supporters and yet not loyal to anyone or any party becos of his greed, selfishness and voracious personality to get power at all cost, this man only cares about himself and political ambition and will most definitely even betray God himself and Nigerians as long as he gets what he wants.

Well, No surprises becos he's just an epitome of the typical Nigerian politician. Nigeria will always be stagnant and backwards as long as we have these self-seeking, greedy and pilfering muggers in the corridors of power.

Good fan Base but that betrayal spirit, you can't take it away from him. That has been his family political style/history.
