#CCTvsSaraki: Senators Remain Solidly Behind @BukolaSaraki
Since few days ago, a concocted lie which has no iota of truth has been flying about on social media, basically in Kwara State that 77 Senators out of 109 Senators in the Red Chamber have agreed to impeach or force the Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki to resign based on his ongoing politically motivated trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT). We make bold to inform the public that the story is not only fictitious but also mischievous because it is far from truth. The truth is, the spokesman of the Like Minds Senate faction that supported Saraki for Senate President from onset, Sen. Dino Melaye that is coordinating the said number of Senators.
The National Assembly under the Chairmanship of Senator Saraki, enjoys the overwhelming support of Senators who are astute politicians; and appreciate the importance of having an independent legislator, where members can decide for themselves without waiting for unnecessary signal from self-centered political godfathers whose personal interests have beclouded their minds from putting the interests of the masses first.
Over the last 11 months since Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, became the Senate President, he has coordinated Senators towards achieving the goals for which they are elected by Nigerians – Legislations and effective over sight. That is, It is in the Eight Senate that senators are not waiting for them to be lobbied before performing their statutory duties.
To put the record straight, since the inception of 8th Senate on June 9, 2015, the Senate President has never been found wanting in any corrupt practice, both within and outside the Senate, rather, he has always been alleged and blackmailed with corruption cases which are magnified by media. Sadly for his adversaries, such cases have never been backed up with genuine evidences. Is that not enough for Kwarans and indeed Nigerians to be tired of all these fictitious lies about Saraki? Verily, he has been ensuring that masses have full grip of enjoyment of their rights.
It is on this note that we want to categorically state that the Senate President has not done anything contrary to the law of the land which would have warranted his impeachment or resignation as purported by some politically sponsored platforms. Also, we want the public to be mindful that the CCT issue is nothing but a step to curtail the political strength and credentials of Senator President Bukola Saraki which seems threatening to some politicians but with time, he shall be vindicated and the perpetrators would become object of ridicule.
