Leave Saraki Out of Your Media War — Buhari
Responds to Car Purchase Story
The Organising Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State, Mallam. Sulyman Buhari has advised the Kwara State Government and its supporters to properly focus their complaint about a story published by a newspaper based in the state, the National Pilot, on the alleged purchase of bullet proof vehicles instead of making insinuations that “a top politician” was behind the story, a veiled reference to former Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki.
Buhari in a statement in Ilorin today stated that only those who are new comers to the politics of Kwara State and those he called mischievous pretenders would claim not to know that though Dr. Saraki owned the National Pilot newspaper, he does not in any way interfere with the activities of the newspaper and cannot be blamed for whatever the newspaper writes.
He also noted that it should be clear to members of the present government in Kwara State and their supporters that Dr. Saraki is not interested in interfering with what the government does and how it manages its affairs.
“Is it the former Senate President who has no time for the government and its activities that will now be sponsoring stories about trivial issues like purchase of cars? If anybody in the present government in Kwara State has a complaint about a story in National Pilot, the person should take the matter up with the management.
“They should stop making cheap insinuations and leave Dr. Saraki out of their matter. The government is not being disturbed by anybody. We are all ready to give the Governor the chance to deliver on his numerous promises and the administration should stop distracting itself. The government should focus on delivery on its promises”, Buhari stated.
