      Saraki single handedly ruined societe general bank and he looted Kwara dry. His day of reckoning in here . Yes for a Nigeria to move forward we can’t have such a fellow as our Senate President.

      YEP! A lot of people lost their life savings. He and his wife are heartless aristos! Greed, greed, greed!!! I pray he goes to jail. What happened to his boy boy, “senate Clarus” aka Dino the wife beater? He has become silent recently. Hmmm, I sure hope the government sees this through this time around. I sure would live to see them both in kirikiri. Can’t wait for the classic entering Black Maria picture. I miss the old days.

    Ghen ghen. Sooo he was corrupt and fraudulent? Let the trials begin. Next is Amaechi who can then tell us where the Rivers state allocation went, the money for the offensive monorail still hanging like an offensive broken down vehicle on the tracks in TOWN PHC. Then Fashola who will then point at the “big friend” of the President with his ten fingers and ten toes. The Emir of Kano must explain why he was Father Christmas/donatus while he was at the helm of affairs at CBN…, hehehe Shebi immunity if off kwo? Catch one, catch all. This will be interesting indeed.

    These APC people really need to let this go and start steering this country in the right direction. I know APC wasn’t mentioned in the article but let’s be honest with ourselves, if Saraki had stepped aside for APC’s choice of Senate President, we would not be hearing about this story. On another note, I guess that’s how we all forgot about Buhari’s asset declaration. Its gonna be an interesting four years. CCB needs to release the so called documents. This man was touted as Mr. Integrity and he won the election based on that. No one forced him to declare his assets, he used that as a campaign strategy so where are the documents…has he also compelled all his appointees to declare their assets as he said? We cannot take what his media people said as his asset declaration. Because they are obviously confused. Because we Nigerians have such short attention spans, we will wrap our attention around the next thing they throw out to distract us. What is going on with Fashola and his million naira website upgrades and boreholes? No one is talking about it anymore. When we allow these politicians to keep disrespecting us and our votes, we only have ourselves to blame, not them.

      Use the FOI powers granted you by the Good Doctor from Otuoke to get the documents for us, since your attention still dey jim.

      LOL…smh-ing for you seriously….APC said Buhari was the ‘messiah” yet when someone dares question the messiah, they refer to Jonathan’s home-town like it’s supposed to be some kind of insult. I did not mention Jonathan’s name in my comment but every time you people hear criticism, you pull out Jonathan’s name. If Buhari is so much better than Jonathan, why do you guys always compare him to Buhari?Example…….. “Buhari has not declared his assets”….. “but Jonathan didn’t declare his own too”, …smh….The fact that you are asking me to go and get the documents myself has justified my comment. Am i the one that asked Mr. Integrity to tell millions of people that he will declare his assets? So why do I have to get it myself? I asked questions that will foster mature, adult dialogue, you obviously don’t have that ability, so keep it moving and have a wonderful day.

    Me think anyone that has pending issues with EFCC, ICPC code of conduct bureau and the likes should not even be up for voting in the first place. Not to talk of a senate president. But what do I know, I’m just an ordinary citizen.

      He. FFS why do comments here always tend to assume the opposite?? Hell even the fictional Elessar also called Ellendil is a Man. One of the more popular fictional characters. Dead giveaway IMO. Ergo Agadi Nwoke.

    The stories about Saraki has been known for ages. However he became a saint when he aligned with the Apc now that he is not a certain groups favourite they want to set the dogs on him. Same thing with Fashola and Ameachi. Sylva was being prosecuted by the EFCC the minute This government came into power the charge a were dropped. Selective prosecutions is no prosecution.
