<h2>President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has described Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as a representation of all that is wrong with the Nigerian system.</h2>

<p class="">Saraki stated this while reacting to the comments allegedly made against him by Tinubu at the APC campaign in Ilorin, that Kwara state capital, on Monday, February 11, 2019.</p>

<p class="">In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on media and publicity, <strong>Yusuph Olaniyonu</strong>, and made available to <strong><em>Pulse, </em></strong>Saraki described the outing as an expression of the "frustration" within the ruling APC.</p>

<p class="">He expressed optimism that the <strong>Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) </strong>would win Saturday’s presidential election in the state as "<em>punishment</em>" for APC’s "<em>bad behaviour"</em>.</p>

<figure class="image" align="center"> <img src="http://ocdn.eu/images/pulscms/ZjY7MDA_/c8b890185fb744c95f2bb9149e146eea.jpg" alt="Saraki takes shots at Tinubu, Buhari"> <figcaption>Saraki takes shots at Tinubu, Buhari</figcaption> </figure>

<p class="">Saraki noted that the APC leaders are aware of the impending defeat awaiting the in Kwara state adding: "<em>that is why in their desperate mood they are only hurling abuses instead of discussing issues and telling the people what they will do for them".</em></p>

<p class="">Saraki further advised Kwaran to vote for the PDP saying the "<em>APC has no good plan” </em>for the state.</p>

<p class="">The statement reads in part:</p>

<p class=""><em>“They came to Kwara State to hurl insults at me and my people, instead of explaining to the people what they want to do differently and what contributions their flag bearers and other leaders in the State have made to our various communities to justify the people shifting their loyalty to their dying party. They promised nothing concrete that will improve the standard of living of the people and provide infrastructure.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“They have only come to Kwara to vindicate my position that they have no good plans for Kwara State and its people. It is obvious that the APC have nothing to offer Kwarans. They represent nothing good for our people. My problem with them has always been that after we worked with our people to support them to win in 2015, they refused to work on infrastructure and other policy issues that can bring direct benefit to our people.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“As for Tinubu, we have never expected any good words from him. All his life, he will continue to belly ache and nurse grudges over my opposition to the Muslim-Muslim ticket idea in 2015. As far as he is concerned, I stopped him from realizing his ambition then. However, I believe my action then and now is in pursuit of national interest. </em></p>

<p class=""><em>"Again, I supported President Buhari in 2015 because I believe he could make a positive change. I left the party when I realized he lacked the capacity and the desire to make any change. Tinubu on his own part said though he agreed with me about my assessment of the man, he would continue to support Buhari even if the man had to govern from the hospital stretcher because that is the way he (Tinubu) could become the President in 2023. So, while my position is premised on national interest, Tinubu’s is based on his personal interest and ambition. </em></p>

<p class=""><em>" Now that Tinubu’s new speciality is to hurl insults at people like former President Olusegun Obasanjo and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, focusing on me today is okay if it will help him feel good.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“It is surprising that a man like Tinubu will be talking about morality and corruption. This is a man whose disrepute is known both within and outside Nigeria. This is somebody who personifies everything that is wrong with the Nigerian system. Well, I am not ready to roll in the gutter with him. Unlike them, I will stay on the issues that are germaine to national development and the welfare of our people. </em></p>

<p class=""><em>“However, let me make it clear that what Tinubu and his putative party chairman, Oshiomhole, did today is to insult the people of Kwara State who are independent minded, forward looking, assertive and God- fearing. On Saturday, the APC will be punished for their bad behaviour. Kwarans will tell them that they cannot take dictates from power mongers, pretenders and hypocrites. The people of Kwara State will never take dictates from selfish individuals. Their evil design will be thwarted on Saturday and March 3”</em>, Saraki stated.</p>

<p class="">Meanwhile, the APC presidential campaign in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital, was mated with violence as supporters threw objects at leaders of the party on live TV.</p>
