How Bukola Saraki saved my life – Oyegun

Chief John Odigie Oyegun, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said he is to grateful to God and Senator Bukola Saraki for saving his life, stating that he could have been hospitalized if not dead. Oyegun paid tribute to the former Kwara state governor during the grand reception to round off the 75th birthday anniversary in Benin, Edo state. While offering thanks to God at St. Paul Catholic Church in Benin, Oyegun narrated how Saraki’s request to fly with him in his chartered plane to Minna saved him from an accident. He stated that he and his convoy were on their way for the campaign rally of David Umaru, who was vying for the Niger East senatorial seat in a bye-election in Niger state when Saraki asked him to join him at Ilorin, but he had told the former governor that he had a large entourage. He further explained to the congregation that in the end, only he and three members of his entourage were able to join Saraki due to the small size of the jet, while others drove through road to Minna. According to him, during the return journey, his official car was involved in a fatal accident, leaving two of his orderlies seriously injured and hospitalised. “God has been so good to me. I thank God for saving me from an accident,” Oyegun said and promised that “as chairman of APC, I will continue to be a Catholic, first and foremost,” he said.
