Oyegun did not collect bribe from Saraki – APC springs to its Chairman’s defence

The Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has defended National Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, on the supposed allegation that he was induced by Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

The APC in the Edo, stated that a recent media publication insinuated that Oyegun “collected gifts from Senator Bukola Saraki before the NASS election, while pretending to be in support of the party’s decision to cede the Senate Presidency to Senator Ahmed Lawan.”

The statement released by State publicity secretary, Godwin Erhahon, said a report by a national daily stated that this was why the eight APC governors who met with Oyegun on Tuesday, asked for his resignation.


He said;

“That publication is a figment of the imagination of the author. We in Edo have been able to read the statement of the governor and the national chairman and there was ‎no spelt allegation or call for resignation.

In any case, who can bribe the national chairman and what for? The emergence of the current Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives was something that was not expected; it took everybody by surprise and the governor took his own position.

Everybody is also aware that President‎ Mohammadu Buhari told everyone to calm down and ensure that the matter was not allowed to break the party. So at what level will bribery come in?”
