Former spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bolaji Abdullahi, has insisted that Senate President Bukola Saraki did not betray him.
He said this in reaction to reports that Saraki worked against his governorship ambition.
Abdullahi withdrew from the race during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary on Monday.
In a statement, Abdullahi said although the outcome of the primaries may have been disappointing, he has “accepted it as the will of Allah”.
“Following the reactions that have trailed the Governorship Primaries of our party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara state, it has become imperative for me to make the following clarifications.
“While the outcome of the primaries may have been disappointing, I have accepted it as the will of Almighty Allah, who alone gives power. I want to thank all those who have expressed concerns for me. I am humbled and flattered by your support.

“However, I will like to note that there are many factors at play in politics. Therefore, interpreting what happened as betrayal is not correct. My leader, Dr. Bukola Saraki, did not betray me.
“Whatever sacrifices I have made in the past were based on my personal principles, and were not contingent on expectations of any reward. I remain a loyal member of the Saraki political family under the leadership of Dr. Bukola Saraki,” Abdullahi said.
