Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Yusuph Olaniyonu, has denied reports that Saraki congratulated the All Progressive Congress (APC) Senator-elect, Ibrahim Oloriegbe
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mr Oloriegbe, the APC candidate, who contested against Mr Saraki in Saturday’s National Assembly election, won the Kwara Central Senatorial District.
Mr Olaniyonu in a statement on Monday urged party supporters to disregard the report which claimed Mr Saraki conceded defeat to Mr Oloriegbe.
He said: “The position of the Saraki camp will be communicated to the public later today (Monday).’’
“The public should disregard any fictitious statements being issued and shared on WhatsApp. Our position on the election will be communicated later today.
“In the interim, the APC should stop issuing statements congratulating itself and ascribing it to our camp,’’ he said.
