A group, the Lagos State Association of Indigenous Youths, LAIY, has alleged that Senate President Bukola Saraki was behind a recent media report that said the Presidency was building a security surveillance ring around former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The group said the Senate President sponsored the media report in order to pitch Tinubu against the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a press release issued on Wednesday by Comrade Sofwan Temitope Ogungbo, President of LAIY, the group alleged that Senate President Bukola Saraki sponsored the media report to cause controversy within the All Progressives Congress (APC) and shift attention away from Saraki’s case before the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
LAIY said: “the media report was nothing but sponsored fabrication to achieve heinous objectives.”
“This is not the first time we are reading speculative and junk media report on the relationship between Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu and President Buhari.
“It only comes out funnier with the appendage that Asiwaju is even lobbying Saraki to wage war on President Buhari.
“We think this kind of story coming from a popular newspaper betrays intelligence and journalism. It is a story that will not fly if told to a student in secondary school.
“It is nothing but sponsored fiction targeted at a man who is living his dream as a common sense revolutionist and liberator of the masses.”
