Senate President Bukola Saraki has dissociated himself from a message being circulated on WhatsApp that he has congratulated the APC and its candidate Ibrahim Oloriegbe, who won the Kwara central senatorial election.
Oloriegbe had defeated Saraki in each of the four local governments in the district: Ilorin South, Ilorin West, Ilorin East and Asa. Wile Oloriegbe polled a total of 72,277 votes, Saraki polled 58,919 votes.
Describing the Whatsapp message as fictitious, Yusuph Olaniyonu, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Senate President, said: “The public should disregard any fictitious statements being issued and shared on WhatsApp by the PDP in Kwara. Our position on the election will be communicated later today.
“In the interim, the APC should stop issuing statements congratulating itself and ascribing it to our camp.”
