Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has denied Hushpuppi after the APC called on EFCC to probe him over alleged links with the suspected cyber criminal.
The party noted that the probing is paramount considering the fact that many of PDP stalwarts had several meetings in Dubai ahead of the 2019 general elections and were spotted with Hushpuppi.
APC’s press release read in part, ”That the PDP leadership turned Dubai into their “Strategic” meeting place ahead of the 2019 general elections in Nigeria and “Hushpuppi’s” affinity with the PDP leadership is not mere coincidence.
At different times, “Hushpuppi” was been photographed in Dubai meeting with the PDP’s 2019 presidential candidate, Alh. Atiku Abubakar; former Senate President, Bukola Saraki; former Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; Senator Dino Melaye among other PDP stalwarts.
While relevant authorities investigate the nature of their relationship and business partnership, we also challenge the PDP leadership to do same by opening up on the nature of the relationship, particularly the kind of services the arrested “Hushpuppi” provided them.”
Saraki through his media aide, Yusuph Olaniyonu in a swift reaction described APC’s statement which tried to link him with Hushpuppi as “irresponsible and cheap politics”.
The former Senate President in the statement warned that he has no form of association with the said suspect, Hushpuppi and neither does he know him in any way.
