Senate President Bukola Saraki has denied congratulating Dr Ibrahim Oloriegbe of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who defeated him in the Kwara central senatorial contest.

His Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Yusuph Olaniyonu, on Monday said that contrary to reports, Saraki did not congratulate Oloriegbe

Olaniyonu, in a statement, dissociated the Saraki camp from a message being shared on WhatsApp which states that the PDP and Saraki have congratulated the APC and its candidates.

He further stated that the position of the Saraki camp will be communicated to the public later on Monday.

“The public should disregard any fictitious statements being issued and shared on WhatsApp by the PDP in Kwara. Our position on the election will be communicated later today.

“In the interim, the APC should stop issuing statements congratulating itself and ascribing it to our camp”, Olaniyonu said.
