Sagay lambasts APC leadership, acccuses them of disloyalty..



Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, PACAC, Prof Itse Sagay SAN on Wednesday fired back at the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, describing them as ‘‘come and chop’’ politicians.

The APC had stated that Sagay has no iota of respect for President Muhammadu Buhari, adding that the political appointee indicted his boss by describing the leadership of the ruling party as “weak” and “unprincipled”.

In a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the party lamented that the senior advocate feels accountable to only his ego, and is independent of everyone and every institution in the APC government.

In his reaction, Sagay stated that the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and Abdullahi are destroying the party because of their loyalty to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, reminding them that they are national leaders of a ruling party because of Buhari.

In a statement he posted online, the PACAC chairman pledged his loyalty to the President and Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, adding that the APC has continued to fail under the leadership of Oyegun.

According to Sagay, “I am an accomplished man long before any appointment. I am not a ‘‘come and chop’’ politician like you lot.

“My loyalty is to the President and not to the party which has continued to fail under the leadership of Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

“To start with, I am not a ‘come and chop’ person as you are. I did not come to ‘chop’; so the party is not doing me a favour. You are the ones that have 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.”
