Bukola Saraki, former president of the senate, says Adams Oshiomhole, suspended national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is about to meet his “waterloo.”
In a statement on Friday, Yusuph Olaniyonu, media aide to Saraki, quoted the former senate president as saying this while welcoming Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo, to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Exactly one week ago, Obaseki was disqualified from contesting the governorship primary election in the All Progressives Congress (APC) over a “defective” certificate.
He resigned his membership of the APC and finally joined the PDP on Friday.
Saraki thanked PDP governors for the role they played in ensuring that Obaseki defected to the party.
The former governor of Kwara state said he knew a day would come when Oshiomhole’s “masquerade will dance naked in the market.”
“I also thank Obaseki’s colleagues, the PDP governors, for their role and for ensuring that while bringing him into the party, they carried along the local chapter and refrain from just unilaterally taking decisions without the input of the leaders of the party in Edo state,” he said.
“The truth is always constant and no matter how far falsehood travels, the truth will catch up with it one day.
“Oshiomhole can fool people for a long time but he cannot fool the people all the time. What is happening to him now is a moment of truth. This same man who was garrulously proclaiming the end of the political career of some other people is now about to meet his waterloo.
“He has continued to use his mouth to divide his party and I believe there is a lesson for all politicians to learn from the fate of the suspended APC chairman. No autocrat can successfully pretend to be a Democrat. The true character of a man will come out one day.”
After Ibrahim Oloriegbe of the APC defeated Saraki in 2019 Kwara central senatorial election, Oshiomhole had taunted the ex-senate president, saying he had been buried politically.
