Response to the @OfficialAPCNg Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole by Yusuph Olaniyonu (@YusuphOlaniyonu), Special Adviser on Media & Publicity to the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki.
"It is rather surprising that Mr. Adams Oshiomhole is behaving like a rain-beaten chicken, crying all over the place about Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, as if the Senate President is the apparition haunting his life and the sinking ship that he captains."
"Having decided not to join the pigs in rolling in the dirt; we would not like to be involved in any meaningless exchange with the demagogue that is now in charge of APC."-#ResponseToOshiomhole
"However, because he claimed that he was reacting to the issues raised by the Senate President during his World Press Conference, we thought it necessary to give the APC Chairman some attention." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
"We find that instead of addressing any of the issues raised by the Senate President, Oshiomhole's press conference merely showcased his obsession with Saraki's removal, which he did without any decorum." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
"Oshiomhole brimmed with hate, hurled abuses, threw tantrums, told lies, and huffed and puffed. However, in the end, he said nothing." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
"It's quite amazing that the same Oshiomhole, who is now describing Saraki as a 'politician of no consequence' was the same one who only a few months ago was crawling all over the place pleading for Saraki's support to become chairman." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
"By his conduct and utterances, Oshiomhole, who accused Saraki of not acting in the national interest, needs to do more to convince Nigerians that his desperate desire to become party chairman is not simply to feed his over-sized ego." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
Oshiomhole and the APC's position "that the Senate President must resign is wishful thinking...They will need 73 Senators to lawfully remove Dr. Saraki and they will never get that in the present 8th Senate."-#ResponseToOshiomhole
"The argument of APC that the Senate President must come from a majority party; that the Senate Presidency is their crown and that the National Assembly is their palace is only supported by ignorance and dangerous delusions." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
"First, the issue of which party is in the majority will only be resolved when the Senate resumes. Secondly, Section 50 (1) (a) of the Constitution is clear that any Senator can be elected as Senate President." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
"If the only thing left of the APC's 'Change Agenda' is to change the Senate President -- we wish them goodluck." 👋🏿
"Mr. Oshiomhole needs to be better educated about our parliamentary history. He stated: 'For the first time in the history in Nigeria, we have a situation where the APC had majority of Senators and went on to elect a member of PDP as DSP.'" -#ResponseToOshiomhole
"Where was Mr. Oshiomhole when Senator John Wash Pam of the Nigerian People's Party (NPP) became Deputy Senate President in the Second Republic even when the National Party of Nigeria (NPN) had the majority." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
"The same thing happened in the House of Representatives when NPP's Rt. Hon. Edwin Umeh Ezeoke was elected Speaker in an NPN majority House. But then, it would require a level of education to understand these things." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
"What hypocrisy! This same APC jubilated when Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal retained his position after he defected from the PDP and still retained his seat, even when his new party was in the minority. These are people whose standards of morality are infinitely elastic."
"Oshiomhole's ignorance is too clear in his comments about how the Senate was adjourned on July 24, 2018 and the distribution of committee chairmanships in the Senate and the difference between the post of Senate President and Minority Leader."
"Oshiomhole obviously does not understand that the post of Minority Leader is strictly a party affair and that... it is not even mentioned in the Constitution."-#ResponseToOshiomhole
"The position of Senate President is a constitutional creation, which required majority votes of all the members. Again, we don't expect people whose only experience in politics is at the provincial levels to understand this. No wonder they are talking of crowns and inheritance."
"The fair distribution of the Committee chairmanships is one of the stabilizing factors in the 8th Senate and has helped it in achieving more than all its predecessors." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
If Oshiomhole wants to know why the 2018 budget was delayed, "he should ask the heads of the MDAs. We reckon that should be easy for him since he is now their 'headmaster', moving around with canes to whip Ministers into line." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
"Oshiomhole once again demonstrated his lack of history [classes] by talking of Buhari winning more votes in Kwara than Saraki. We are sure President Buhari himself will disagree with the APC chairman." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
"We invite the APC chairman to look at the figures of votes secured by the President in 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015 to know that the difference is clear, like a commercial advert stated." -#ResponseToOshiomhole
"We hereby assure this garrulous, tactless and reckless APC chairman that a million of Adams Oshiomhole cannot remove Saraki as Senate President. His illegal plots, can only feed his insatiable ego and keep him awake at night. But it will remain an exercise in futility."
