Of course. You're very wise with this.

Can't expect Saraki to have said how Tinubu was forced to allow a Muslim-Christian ticket.

The mere fact that he continuously resounds Tinubu's name only goes to show how he was forced.

SARAKI in 2014!!

Facts are indeed sacred!!!

APC VP Candidacy;
Saraki salutes Tinubu's sacrifice
December 18, 2014
Former Kwara State Governor, Senator Bukola Saraki has commended the sacrifice and contribution of former Lagos State Governor, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to the development of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and democracy in Nigeria.
Saraki also welcomed the emergence of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo as the running mate of the presidential candidate of APC, General Muhammadu Buhari.
Saraki, in a statement said: “The emergence of Professor Yemi Osinbajo – a Professor of law; a well-ranked academic; a senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN); and a committed pastor of unquestionable integrity from South-West Nigeria further attests to the commitment of the All Progressives Congress to fairness and equality.
“Most importantly, I would like to commend the National Leader of our party, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, for the sacrifice and contribution to the development of APC and democracy in Nigeria. No doubt, from his precedents as a forward-thinking Governor of Lagos State, and his profile as one of the foremost democrats in Nigeria, the people of the South-West and a large block of voters wanted Asiwaju as running mate to General Buhari.
“Historically, the South-West is known not to pay attention to religion but competence when picking candidates for positions, but due to Tinubu’s belief in the Nigerian project, which he sees as bigger than any individual interest, he made it clear that we cannot ignore the current happenings around the country that require that as a party, we must take extra caution and be sensitive to every ethnicity and religion by picking a Christian candidate.
“Despite what has been reported on the pages of some newspapers, some of us privy to the happenings behind closed doors attest to the leadership role of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, which led to the emergence of Osinbajo, an erudite scholar and a dogged advocate of the people.
“In the same spirit, I must also commend other leaders of the APC who have continuously made sacrifices in the interest of the party and Nigeria at large. Leaders like Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Alhaji Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso and Owelle Rochas Okorocha who on Thursday December 11, 2014 after the presidential primaries made similar sacrifices by pledging their support to General Buhari, contrary to speculations by naysayers that the APC would implode either after the primary or in the course of the nomination of its vice-presidential candidate. APC has, once again, demonstrated that national interests are paramount in the guiding principle of the party, as opposed to personal ambition.
“I use this opportunity to congratulate all party stakeholders, most especially the presidential candidate for the success of the process in the selection of the Vice-Presidential candidate; this process has once again demonstrated to Nigerians the preparedness of APC to run an efficient and transperent government, putting to shame those that have said the party was made up of people with personal ambitions,” he said.

This proves Saraki's statement yesterday was true and that Tinubu wanted to be Buhari's VP but he was prevailed upon to field someone else. If Tinubu had insisted, APC would have been in big trouble and Saraki was only commending him for putting the party first. Nothing here suggests they were cool together. Everything here pointed to party interest.

God bless you for comprehending well. I see no difference between his position then and what he said about Tinubu now. For me, he was just being diplomatic and loyal to party ethics. In fact, this has shown he has always known a lot about top ranking party member's motive towards this government.

Use your brain for once nah, stop with these una orgasmic mouth diarrhea by calling Saraki names just because he refuses to play the same ball game with all those slowpokes.

Politics and half truths. They failed to tell you how Saraki fought against the emergence of BAT as running mate to Buhari while citing a muslim-muslim ticket as unhealthy for Nigeria at the time. They only tell you how Saraki congratulated the emergence of a compromise candidate in the Prof and saluted BAT to oil his wounded ego

This shows consistency in Saraki.
He appreciated Tinubu for the "sacrifices" looking at the current situation in the country at that time.

It shows that Tinubu had an ambition, but decided to let it go after he has been persuaded or forced back down.

All I see is that, Saraki used the statement to calm Tinubu down after quashing his ambition, more like, when you slap your son for misbehaving and later take him to the supermarket to calm him.

Saraki is too intelligent for this people, one thing I love about him is his consistency, I have never seen Saraki talking with both sides of the mouth, or said something during PDP and another during APC.

Long live the best senate president in history

This was when the bed of strange bed fellows was still freshly made and everyone's shït seemed like fresh, sweet scenting perfume even on that bed. Everyone's pretence level was on point. Now that the bed is dirty and awash with bugs, they've run out of those to hide behind and use to make themselves seem clean and saintly. They have called Jonathan, PDP, God, Rats and others too numerous to mention. Now they have turned on themselves.

Those with abridged and selective reasoning have forgotten that at the time Saraki and crew were hailed for their 'selfless sacrifice' in dumping the 'corrupt' PDP to join the 'progressives'. Now Saraki has decamped back to PDP it is no longer sacrifice, it's now greed. At least he minded his business o! But APC class prefects still keep writing his name in their list of noise makers even when he's no longer in their class. Still,he never called Tinubu o! Now Tinubu came out to say he's greedy and looking for automatic ticket and that is why he left APC. Was that not the case in 2014? Or is it now a case of 4 legs good and 2 legs bad? Fowl nko? grin

Saraki too has now come our to tell us the real story of 'greed' displayed by Tinubu without regard to the religious plurality and sensitivity in the country. It is only a heartless, wicked and yet dumb fool that would have contemplated a muslim-muslim ticket in Nigeria of 2014/2015 but lucky for them, people like Saraki intervened to save the idiots from themselves hence their 'victory' in 2015.

Now these yeye zombies and praise singers want to exercise selective memory abi interpretation? Abeg make una clear road! Nonsense!
