Senate President Bukola Saraki has asked Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to relinquish his position as the party's national chairman.
Saraki made the call in Ilorin on Wednesday, on the sidelines of a remembrance ceremony held in honour of his late father.
Saraki said Oshiomhole does not have the moral justification to remain APC chairman let alone remain in politic because of the plethora of bribery allegations levelled against him by party members.
On Sunday, the Department of State Services (DSS) had grilled Oshiomhole after some APC governors alleged that he received bribes during the party’s primary elections across the country.
“Oshiomhole has no locus standi to talk about morality in today’s Nigeria’s politics. That must be a joke coming from Oshiomhole talking about moral ground.
“Oshiomhole is somebody who has been told 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, even to continue to be in politics not to talk about being a 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, based on integrity, knows the right thing to do. So, on moral ground, he cannot speak on moral ground.” he said
