You are a compulsive liar and an unreliable man, Saraki tells Senator Adamu
Senate President Bukola Saraki has described the Senator representing Nasarawa West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Alhaji Abdullahi Adamu as a compulsive liar and an unreliable man who will do or say anything to suit his situation at any point in time.
Senator Saraki disclosed this in a press statement issued on his behalf by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu.
Saraki who was responding to a comment made by Senator Adamu noted that Senator Adamu was showing this latest desperation and attack on members of the Senate to prompt his handlers in the Presidency to drop the corruption case in the EFCC against him.
He disclosed that his quest for survival in view of the prevailing situation has led him to tell brazen lies and peddle mischief in his old age.
“I have deliberately ignored the antics of Senator Abdullahi Adamu, especially his constant media attacks on me and the Senate since the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission dusted his file on alleged case of corruption and also went ahead to arraign his son in court” the statement reads.
“So far, I had refrained from responding in kind out of respect for his age. However, it seems he has misread my maturity and respect for docility. He feels the best way to play his self-survival game and ingratiate himself to the government in order to save his skin is for him to be seen to be fighting Saraki, even if that would require him to tell brazen lies and peddle mischief in his old age.
“However, I feel his latest statement in an interview with a national newspaper deserves a reaction from me.
“Senator Melaye has so far outshined and has performed better than Senator Abdullahi in terms of the number of bills sponsored, motion raised and contributions to debate on the floor.
“Senator Adamu is free to challenge this assertion by showing his records
“Well, since Senator Abdullahi Adamu became the attack dog of the executive in the Senate, using language unbecoming of a man of his age against me and other colleagues who he perceived he needs to disparage to reassure his handlers in the Presidency, I have realised that he simply deserves our sympathy. I am sure those he thinks he is working for know he is a man who is only useful for the present moment,”
