‘Video of me asking Nigerians to vote Buhari was doctored’ – Saraki cries out
Bukola Saraki, the director-general of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign organisation has denied asking Nigerians to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari.
A video clip currently trending on the internet showed Mr Saraki canvassing votes for Mr Buhari in his native country home, Kwara State.
This is coming few days after a fake letter allegedly emanated from a foreign firm to Saraki inundating him that Atiku Abubakar, the PDP candidate for the election will loose to Buhari.
The president who is seeking a second term in office is running for the exalted office on the platform of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
Saraki, the President of the 8th Senate, who has been campaigning for Mr Abubakar, his party’s presidential candidate, is seen addressing crowds of supporters in his native language in the clip apparently urging them to vote for the APC candidate.
But denying he made such utterances, the top lawmaker said the clip showing him seeking votes for Buhari has been falsified.
The Senate President stated this in a statement by his media aide, Olu Onemola.
“For the second time in 3 days, the APC has doctored another campaign instrument — simply for the sake of pushing out propaganda,” Mr Onemola said in a series of tweets Friday afternoon.
“In what world would Saraki, the DG of Atiku’s campaign, who has seen first hand the incompetence of Buhari ask people to vote for a failed President?
“The entire tape has been doctored, much in the same way that the APC faked a letter to the Senate President earlier this from Brian Ballard and even went as far as forging his signature.
“The public should disregard the desperate antics of the losing APC. We all want a Better Nigeria, and none of us would encourage even half a person to vote for Buhari,” the spokesman said.

The Governor-Elect of Taraba state, Agbu Kefas has presented his certificate of return to the Aku-Uka Of Wukari during a visit to his hometown yesterday, Friday 31st of March, 2023.
This was borne out of the need to show gratitude to the people of Wukari for their massive support during the governorship election that was held a few weeks ago.
On arrival at his hometown, a mammoth crowd followed the governor-elect, Agbu Kefas to the palace of the Aku-Uka as they were filled with joy due to the victory of their son in the keenly contested election.
While receiving the certificate of return, Aku-Uka of Wukari expressed joy at Kefas’ accomplishment in the just concluded election. He acknowledged his humility and prayed for divine wisdom for him to lead the people of Taraba.
He urged him to remain steadfast, committed to the service of the people of Taraba and not backtrack from the campaign promises which pushed the people to vote for him in the election.
In his reaction, Agbu Kefas reiterated his determination to work hard and fulfil his duties as the elected governor of Taraba state.
Governor-elect, Agbu Kefas has hit the ground running since he won the election. He has made successful efforts to bring the opposition together in order to work for the progress of Taraba. He has also met several investors across the country to discuss plans to make Taraba a better state than it is presently.
His agenda for the people of Taraba includes but not limited to Health care, security, agriculture, road infrastructure, quality education, employments for the youths, to mention a few

With Governor-Elect, Agbu Kefas, Taraba State Is In Safe Hands By Oluwatosin Alex
There may be tension at the moment, there may be security concerns, there may be massive debts owed by the present administration but with the emergence of Agbu Kefas as the governor-elect, Taraba state is in safe hands.
There was a revelation a few days ago that Agbu Kefas will be inheriting a debt of over N200 Billion and this was confirmed by local government executives in the state that claimed Governor Darius Ishaku is owing them salaries for six months.
Agbu Kefas in a statement had noted that he will clear the backlog of salaries for workers in the state and provide a better welfare package for them, as against what the present administration has done in the last eight years.
Since the emergence of Kefas, He has been meeting with important personalities within and outside the state to seek solutions to the problems of Taraba state. He has the plans already, He knows what to do to bring succor to the people and his meeting with these important personalities is just a means to make the plans come to fruition. One of the major discussions of these meetings is payment of the many debts owed and it’s so sure that before his first 100 days in office, many workers would be smiling to the bank already.
Agbu Kefas is ever ready to work for the people of Taraba state and will most likely appoint his commissioners within 40 days in office. He isn’t giving any room for mediocrity and has already chosen the best hands across the state. Some of the things that will be visible in the administration of Kefas Agbu is creation of wealth, port activities, CCTV for security reasons, tourism, strengthened electricity supply and many others.
The youths won’t also be left out in the administration of Agbu Kefas. He is someone who believes in the ability of the youths and will definitely make them part and parcel of his government.
Indeed, Taraba state is in safe hands with Agbu Kefas.
