‘We’ve Initiated Recall, Saraki Should Restrain Aides Threatening Us As DSS Is Noitfied’
The Kwara State Publicity Secretary of All Progressive Congress (APC),
Mr. Sulyman Buhari issued an empty statement on 14th July, 2017, where
he was beating his none existing chest over our call for the recall of
the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki.
The inconsequential APC spokesman in Kwara State, who is not even
known in his own ward in Ilorin, nor has the capacity to influence
anyone boast that Kwara Must Change can never secure the required
signatures against the Senate President, adding that he would resign
his position if such happen, but we do not consider such an irrelevant
person as worthy of our attention.
We would like to state that, the good people of Ilorin that are ready
for the recall exercise have no business with an inconsequential
Publicity Secretary. All the people are demanding for is adequate
representation, which the Senate President has failed to offer, hence
the decision to activate the constitutional process of recall.
While the APC publicity secretary is busy making empty boasts on media,
some of the Legislative Aides of the Senate President have dolled huge
sums of money to launch campaign of calumny against the leadership of
our group to discredit our personalities, but unknown to them, what
they are doing is not only making the recall process more widely known
and accepted by the people, it has also allowed more supporters and
well wishers, even among their own followers have access to us to
pledge their support to the recall process. We have to thank them for
helping us and the people, as we consider their campaign of calumny,
an unintended blessing in disguise.
Most importantly, we must warn one particular legislative aide of the
Senate President, Mr. Olaitan Obalowu, who called to threaten violence
over the recall of Senator Bukola Saraki. Olaitan is a legislative
aide to Dr. Saraki and a former Coordinator of Muhammed Dele Belgore
We wonder what they are scared of, when they have described the recall
as an exercise in futility.
Let it be clear that the process of recall has been initiated. It is a
constitutional process that can not be stopped by any threat. It will
take place as announced and shall succeed insha Allah.
If the senate president is as popular as he thinks, there is nothing
to worry about, because we cannot recall the Senate president without
the people. This is simply a test of popularity.
We maintain that nobody can threaten us, because we are determined to
carry on with this process and get it to a logical conclusion. As law
abiding citizens of Nigeria and employer of the Senate President, the
people reserve the right to hire and fire him at any time we consider
his services no longer useful. This is the power we intend to exercise
without fear or favor.
We therefore call on the Senate President to caution his overzealous
aides and warn them to desist from unwarranted threat, because should
anything happen to any of our members; we would hold him directly
We also call on the Department of State Security (DSS) and the
Nigerian Police to warn all those making threats against other
citizens over issue of law and constitutionality. No citizen should be
threatened for exercising their rights, as contained in the Nigerian
Finally, we reiterate that the signing of the recall register shall
hold as announced on 1st August, 2017 and we urge all electorates in
Kwara Central to troop out en-mass to sign the register, so as to
effect the recall.
