Bukola Saraki, former Senate President, has said that his decision to dump the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was informed by the party’s failure to keep to promises made to Nigerians.
He disclosed this when he welcomed several members of the APC who decamped to the PDP in Ilorin, Kwara State.
The former Kwara governor alleged undue persecution by the ruling APC.
He said, “I didn’t leave APC for fun. I did so because the party failed to fulfill its campaign promises to Nigerians. It failed woefully along this line.
“Also, I was taken to all cadres of courts in Nigeria. Even as I didn’t study law, I was almost becoming a lawyer because of my familiarity with so many legal concepts. But in the end, I was vindicated.”
Speaking on the ‘O To Ge’ movement against him and his supporters in Kwara in 2019, Saraki said the political revolution allegedly thrived under unfounded propaganda by members of the opposition party in the state.
He expressed belief that an average voter in Kwara had the leadership style that he represents and the egocentric nature of leadership that other represent.
