PIC. 4. SENATE PRESIDENT BUKOLA SARAKI AT THE CODE OF CONDUCT TRIBUNAL WHERE HE WENT TO TAKE  HIS PLEA IN THE 13-COUNT CHARGE SLAMMED ON HIM OVER ALLEGED FALSE DECLARATION OF HIS ASSETS, IN  ABUJA ON TUESDAY (22/9/15). 6772/22/9/2015/HF/CH/BJO/NAN

PDP has denied reports that it plans to dump Senate President, Bukola Saraki, due to his trial for false asset declaration by the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

National Publicity Secretary of the PDP,  Olisa Metuh,told Punch:

“We have no candidate for the office of the Senate President, because we have a fit person occupying the position for now.

We are behind him and we can’t abandon him just because he is undergoing trial. Anybody can be put on trial, but the question we should ask is whether the trial is political or not.

Does the trial have merit? When we see the merit of the case, we will take position. But for now, there is nothing like that.”

Saraki, who is a former governor of Kwara State, is currently facing a 13-count charge for false declaration of assets when he served as governor of the state.

    These people tire me biko. Whether its a witchhunt or not or political. If a crime has been alleged to have been committed, let him defend himself. That he put himself in a position that can get our number3 man in docks is enough disgrace to our nation chrrrrrr. Stand by him all you like.

    I and my immediate elder sister do not get along, we have just never got along, there was never any mighty quarrel, we are just so different. Sometimes i think it odd considering the gap between us is barely two years and we could easily have been chummy, but it is what it is.
