Bukola-Saraki-The Senator representing kwara Central in the National Assembly, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has announced that workers of the Subsidy Reinvestment Programme (SURE-P) that were “sacked” following their allegiance to the party, will be paid latest by today (Tuesday).

Saraki, who is a former governor of the state, made the announcement on Monday while addressing the All-Progressives Congress (APC) supporters in Oyun local government area of the state during a campaign tour of the area.

“The SURE-P participants that were sacked, I want to assure you we will pay them latest by Tuesday (today), when we would have completed our verification”, he said.

It could be recalled that the Kwara State Government and federal government have been at daggers drawn over alleged politicisation of the scheme in the state following the defection of scores of people from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to APC in the state.

Two coordinators of the scheme in the state, Alhaji AbdulGaniyu Olododo (Kwara-Central) and his counterpart in Kwara-South, Alh. Kola Shittu, have at different times, alleged that the state co-coordinator of SURE-P, Chief Moses Ibeyemi, replaced the names of PDP members who defected to the APC.

Saraki, while addressing APC members in Oyun, lamented that the federal government had subjected the people of the state to hardship through some of its actions.

The senate committee chairman on environment and ecology berated the Jonathan-led administration for condoning corruption, pointing out that public officials were stealing funds, which were supposed to come to states for development.

Saraki recalled that during his administration as governor of Kwara, he was able to record success under PDP because the administration of the late President Umar Musa Yar’adua, was not corrupt like Jonathan’s.

“All the money that should be going to states for developments is being stolen by those in Abuja and that is why we are in this situation today.

“The achievements we were able to record in the state while I was governor were done during the administration of late president Umar Musa Yar’adua. For us to meet your demands you must vote General Muhammad Buhari (rtd) as president in the coming election; he is the only one that can fix Nigeria”, he stated.

    APC has been consistent in saying dat PDP has ruled Nigeria for 16 disastrous years in which corruption, impunity, insurgency, armed robbery and several ill society held sway.
    But at a very close luk at APC, I am seeing
    1. Rotimi Amaechi – 8years speaker, 7years Governor under PDP
    2. Atiku Abubakar – 8years Vice president under PDP
    3. George Akume – 8years Governor under PDP
    4. Bukola saraki – 8years Governor, 2years Senator under PDP
    5. Timipre Sylver – 4years Governor under PDP
    6. Audu Ogbe – 2years Chairmanship under PDP
    7. Aminu Masari – 4years speaker, house of Rep under PDP
    8. Chris Ngige – 3years Governor under PDP
    9. Rabiu Kwankwaso – 7years Governor, 3years Defense Minister under PDP
    10. El Rufai – 4years FCT Minister, 2years BPE chairman under PDP
    11. And to cap it all, Obasanjo is d Navigator of APC, a man who spent 8years of d disastrous 16years as d maximum ruler of Nigeria.
    It is now clearer dat APC is a waste basket of PDP, wia d people who created n perpetuated d 16disastrous years are now dumped, so wia is d CHANGE comim 4rm?
    Are they now saints cos d joined APC? Pls, b wise n Vote not 4 those seekin power by FORCE… ASSOCIATION OF PAST CRIMINALS (APC)

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his nationwide broadcast over the ongoing #EndSARS protest rocking the country.

He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.

Reacting in a statement on Thursday night by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbodinyan, the PDP said Buhari’s address was depressing and failed empathy test.

The party appealed to Nigerians, particularly the youth, to remain calm and allow a return to normal life in the collective quest for peaceful co-existence in the overall interest of the nation.
