Saraki’s denial to run a charade – Dele Momodu


Media mogul, Dele Momodu, has faulted the statement on behalf of the Senate president, Bukola Saraki, denying his intention to run for presidency.

DAILY POST reported that Saraki through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuf Olaniyonun, regarded news of his principal running for president as false .

However, Momodu who had over the weekend claimed that Saraki will be contesting the 2019 presidential elections  regarded the statement by Saraki’s media aide, Alh. Olaniyonu as a charade and an attempt to bully Saraki.

According to him, Saraki would have issued a formal statement to debunk his publication rather than have Alh. Olaniyonu speak through a media platform.

Momodu further stated that Saraki’s Media Adviser has no knowledge of his conversations with his principal.

He wrote on his Twitter page, ” Do not join this charade & attempts to bully Saraki or anyone eyeing the presidency.

“Alh. Olaniyonu would have issued a formal denial if anything but he knows he has never been at any of my various interactions with his boss.”
