Saraki-led protest, a charade and act of irresponsibility – Rauf Aregbesola

The Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola termed the protest led by Senate President, Bukola Saraki against the defeat of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun governorship election as a charade and act of irresponsibility.

“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.

The Governor also appreciated President Muhammadu Buhari for providing the enabling environment for a free and fair election in Osun State.

Saraki had led members of PDP on Friday to engage in a protest to the Abuja headquarter of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the police headquarters over their displeasure at the outcome of the recently concluded Osun State Governorship election and demanded that INEC declare PDP candidate Ademola Adeleke as the winner of the Osun election.

Meanwhile, the Police have summoned Senate President Dr Bukola Saraki, Senators Dino Melaye and Ben Bruce who were arrowheads of the protest.
