Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, former Senate President, has threatened court action against Governor Abdulrahaman Abdurazaq of Kwara State for allegedly accusing him of embezzling UBEC funds during his tenure as governor of the state.
The two-term governor of Kwara State described the claim by Governor Abdulrahaman Abdulrazaq that he embezzled the Universal Basic Education Fund and also used his position as Senate President to prevent the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) from investigating the case as an outright lie which the governor must retract immediately.
Saraki in a statement signed by his Press Officer on Local Matters, Abdulganiyu Abdulqadir, threatened that the governor has only seven days to retract the statement or he will meet him in court to prove his false claims.
“I have ignored all his lies all this while as I believe he was resorting to that cheap escape measure to mask his failure in governance. Now, I will have to take strong measures by challenging him in court since he will not desist from fabricating lies against me.
“I have told my lawyers to write him to retract the statement or be ready to prove it in court,” Saraki stated.
DAILY POST recalls that Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, reportedly made the claim on Sunday while speaking at the inauguration of the campaign council of the APC senatorial candidate for Kwara Central.
