Saraki Led PDP Protest Is A Charade Of Mentally Unstable People — Governor Rauf Aregbesola
Aregbsesola spoke at the presidential villa in Abuja saying that the protest of the PDP and some select senators, including Dino Melaye and Ben Bruce, “is nothing but a charade and an act of irresponsibility’’.
In his words, “the party that was defeated in the election is already in the tribunal. So, I don’t know what the protest is meant to do. It is a charade and an act of gross irresponsibility. After an election, the only option left for any responsible citizen is to go to the tribunal. If you are already in court and you are still doing a street protest, it is either you are not mentally stable or you need psychiatric attention”.
Saraki had led members of PDP on Friday to press home their disagreement with the results of the 27 September governorship election in Osun state. They had engaged in a protest march to the Abuja headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the police headquarters. They demanded that INEC declare PDP candidate Ademola Adeleke as the winner of the Osun election.
Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, and the national chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, were among those that led the protest.
