Oyegun, Saraki Are Bunch of Hungry People In APC Bent On Destroying Buhari - Sagay; ...You're A "Rogue Elephant", APC Fires Back As Both Fight Dirtily

Sagay and APC Fight

Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption has specifically described that National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki among others as the bunch of hungry people who are bent on destroying the party.


Sagay was reacting to the All Progressives Congress who has earlier described him as a “rogue elephant” who lacks respect for President Muhammadu Buhari.

The party, in a statement on Monday, accused Sagay of displaying arrogance and contempt for everyone but himself in a recent interview published in a national daily.

Sagay, in his reaction, however, described the leadership of the APC as a bunch of hungry people who were undermining the progress of the party by attempting to appease corrupt elements.

In a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the party alleged that the professor of Law cast aspersions on the party and its leadership in the interview.

The APC spokesman said, “In the said interview, Sagay described the leadership of the APC as “the most unprincipled group of people” who are “encouraging and accepting rogues” in the party.

“He (Sagay) said, ‘When I say rogues, I don’t mean stealing. In literature, when you say someone is a rogue elephant, it means people who are running riot and destroying the party.”

Abdullahi added, “The Webster Dictionary defines rogue elephant as ‘one whose behaviour resembles that of a rogue elephant in being aberrant or independent’.

“Clearly, if we have today anyone in our government or by extension, the party who feels accountable only to his own ego; who does not feel the need to bridle his tongue for the sake of anything that is higher than himself; who feels independent of everyone and every institution; that person is Professor Sagay.”

The APC argued that Sagay’s insistence that he could go ahead to talk even if the President, who is his employer, asked him to stop talking, was like saying “no matter what is at stake, he would rather resign than obey the President if the President tries to restrain him. This is the quintessential rogue elephant behaviour.”

The statement added, “In his sheer arrogance, he forgets that it is impossible for him to call out the leadership of the party as ‘weak’ and ‘unprincipled’ without indicting the President, who is the leader of the party and has the fundamental responsibility to build the party.

“If Sagay had any iota of respect for the man who dug him back from inevitable oblivion and put him in a position in which he now feels superior to everyone, he would channel his opinions and advice to the President on how to make the party stronger and more principled.

“It appears however that Sagay does not have anything constructive to say about anything. He only knows how to tear down and assault everyone and everything.”

The party reminded Sagay and all other appointees of government that the only reason they occupied their current positions today was because the APC won the 2015 elections.

In his reaction, Sagay said he was an accomplished man long before any appointment, describing his attackers as ‘‘come and chop’’ politicians.

The senior advocate added that his loyalty was to the President and not to the party which he believed had continued to fail under the leadership of Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

He said, “To start with, I am not a ‘come and chop’ person as they are. I did not come to ‘chop’; so they are not doing me a favour. They are the ones that come to ‘chop’.

“Secondly, my criticism of APC is not against President Buhari who I think is a man of great honour, integrity and whom I admire and who inspires me.

“I took this job because of Buhari and Osinbajo, who I admire greatly. The people I am referring to in my criticism are John Odigie-Oyegun and one Bolaji Abdullahi, who is (Senate President Bukola) Saraki’s Man Friday. They are dining with the devil who wants to destroy the party.

“They are appeasers, who are acting the way (former) British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, appeased Adolf Hitler and in the process, they will destroy the party because they are weak and unable to confront evil and they will end up helping that Hitler to destroy the party.

“What is APC without Buhari, Osinbajo and Tinubu? The Oyegun-led executive, which is doing a policy of appeasement, will destroy the party.”
