I Spent Over N6bn To Install Buhari In 2015–Saraki

Senate President Bukola Saraki says he spent between N200 million and N400 million in each of 30 states on the election of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

The senate president said this while addressing members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara state.

The audio was first posted by blogger, Kayode Ogundamisi, on his verified Twitter handle.

Saraki said the people of Kwara would not have been suffering if they had been given enough federal appointments.

He accused President Muhammadu Buhari of punishing the people of the state by starving them of appointments.

“What is the benefit of people that are campaigning for the APC? What is their track record? Use me as an example. When I left the PDP for the APC in 2014 and was campaigning for the APC like never before, we went to every state to campaign with Buhari up until the election time.

“Out of the 36 states, I paid election money in 30. Some collected N300m while some collected N400m, some collected N200m. The only states, where I had nothing to do with was in the south-west.

“Even on the phone I was calling and giving banks instructions. Our thinking was that when we get elected, we would get the majority of appointments. I even told majority of you then that we shall all be going to Abuja together after the election.

“I thought some of you will be appointed to head federal agencies like road maintenance, like FERMA, NITDA, NPA and others. Because I know that if any Kwara son becomes even just the ED of UBEC, I know what he can approve from his desk. Whether N1m or N2m.

“But for the first time, since we joined politics, you have a President of the Senate or even speaker that cannot appoint a cleaner. I am not referring to board appointments like board appointment which just collect money per sitting. If you look at the agencies they appoint executive positions, what do you want me to say?”

    lot more useful than ever before.

    Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but
    I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m
    looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.
