Saraki controlling Kwara governor as a master would control a cook - Oshiomhole

- APC chieftains campaigned against Senate President Bukola Saraki in his state, Kwara

- Party leader, Bola Tinubu, said the APC is ready to liberate Kwara state from Saraki's clutches

- Party chairman, Adam Oshiomhole, said accused Saraki of underdeveloping Kwara state and controlling the governors

National Leader, All Progressives Party (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has urged the mammoth crowd and party supporters at the Ilorin rally to liberate Kwara from the clutches of Bukola Saraki, in the forthcoming general elections.

Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos, made this call on Monday at the APC Presidential Campaign rally in Ilorin, Kwara.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the rally was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari, who led other APC stalwarts including, Chief Bisi Akande, Abdullahi Adamu, the Party National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and others to the gathering.

Tinubu charged the Kwara people to take the advantage of the elections to liberate themselves from the political slavery in the state.

The APC chieftain, who delivered most of his address in Yoruba language, alleged: “It is a long time they have been mismanaging the state’s fund.

“Who is doing this? It is Bukola Saraki. We are here today to demand for freedom and liberation of the state.

“Today, we are here for Bukola Saraki. We are no longer his slaves,” he said

Tinubu noted that his party had nothing against the Senate President’s father, the late Chief Olusola Saraki.

“We pray that God shall repose the soul of the late sage, Olusola Saraki and grant him Aljanah Firdausi,” he said.

NAN reports that Sen. Gbemisola Saraki, the younger sister to the Senate President and a member of APC was at the rally.

He said with the massive turn out of people at the rally and the political revolution going on in Kwara, the state would be free from oppression.

“I know this is the celebration of your freedom, this is the celebration of the fallen of the Berlin wall and the end to oligarchy, the emperor that have enslaved Kwara,” he said.

Tinubu educated the people on how to cast their votes appropriately for APC and to avoid rejected ballots.

Speaking in same vein, Oshiomhole said the rally was a celebration of the end of Bukola Saraki’s reign, who had held the state by the jugular.

He said the mammoth crowd at the rally is an affirmation of the “O to Ge” meaning “Enough is Enough” slogan across the state.

“You must vote APC to oust Bukola, who has underdeveloped Kwara and who controls your governors as a master will control a cook.

“I cannot wait until Saturday, when the referendum to chase out Bukola Saraki will be carried out,” he said.

NAN reports that Oshiomhole presented the APC flag to the party’s Governorship candidate, Alhaji Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that pandemonium broke out at the campaign rally of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abeokuta.

The campaign took a new twist when Ogun state governor, Ibikunle Amosun, came on stage to campaign for the APC and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM).

In response, former governor Aregbesola came on stage to oppose the governor, asking the people to vote for only the candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress.

After Aregbesola started speaking, supporters of the APM verbally opposed him and it degenerated into a rowdy session when Adams Oshiomhole, the APC national chairman came on stage.

Supporters took laws into their hands and started throwing things at the APC leaders.
