The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki on Wednesday called on the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole to vacate his position and quit politics following the allegations of corruption leveled against him by members of his party.

He described Oshiomhole's earlier call for his resignation as Senate President on grounds of morality as a joke. Speaking to newsmen in Ilorin the Kwara state capital on the sidelines of the sixth remembrance prayer for his late father, Dr. Olusola Saraki, Saraki said Oshiomhole has no basis to talk about morality

“That must be a joke coming from Oshiomhole talking about moral grounds. I think Oshiomhole has no locus standi to talk about morality today. Oshiomhole is somebody who is said to have been collecting not even naira but dollars from candidates and he is being accused by his party’s aspirants and governors. I don’t think he has any moral ground to continue to be in politics not to talk about being chairman of a party.

“I remember in those days even Oyegun, they never accused him of something like this. I have left that party; I’m sure the president (Buhari) based on integrity knows the right thing to do,” he said.
