Senate President Bukola Saraki heckled at Eid Praying ground in Ilorin | Video




A video uploaded by Sahara Reporters’ SaharaTV shows Senate President Bukola Saraki being “stoned” and heckled today when he went to the Eid prayer ground in Ilorin.

Though the video is not clear, sounds of “Ole” can be clearly heard. Saraki is the former Governor of Kwara State where he served 2 consecutive terms. He was arraigned at the Code of Conduct Tribunal in Abuja where he is facing false assets declaration charges.

No official word from Saraki’s camp.

      I cannot believe that you support this guy. A man who looted his state as governor. I don’t care who brings justice to him but he must get it. APC/PDP, judgment will befall all of them. Awon oloriburuku gbogbo.

      Am I the only one who understands what the first commenter (maromec) is saying? Yes, in these climes, it is certainly most probable that the hecklers were hired by APC, just as many Nigerians know/believe that his current travails at CCB/CCT are APC national leadership-instigated to teach him a lesson/exact vengeance for his maradona-ing and usurpation of their will and preferred candidates and colluding with the opposition PDP to get himself, and PDP officers into the leadership of the National Assembly. The assets declaration form being used against Saraki is not 2015, it is since like 2003, why have eyes suddenly opened to it now? Buhari who said he is all for democracy and that he will work with whoever the NASS choose for themselves has refused to meet since with the Senate President (Saraki) since his election. All these years, when Nigerians knew (okay, innocent till proven guilty) suspected/believed that the Saraki’s wealth was ill-gotten, Societe Generale’s story remains as FACT before all, yet, we watched in amazement as the late father and entire family continued to be treated a gods/demi-gods/kings/rulers in Kwara state by its people. The late father and since his demise, in fact, before his demise by death, his political demise was at the hand if the son, the family has controlled and decided who gets political power in Kwara state for decades! They control/influence and make sure they are always very strongly allied with the Emir, Imam as well. They have lived their opulent life before Kwarans for decades. People used to line up, crowd the family house in Kwara to collect handouts from the late father, possibly the still do when the son is in town, I don’t know. We didn’t hear then that the same people were questioning where the money to supply all those handouts was coming from or that they were stoning or heckling them for it. Nigerians have never heard of such a thing happening to a SARAKI! in KWARA state of all places! at a MOSQUE! of all places! During a muslim festival i.e. a period when the people (the class who would do the stoning) would even traditionally be receiving and expecting to receive largesse from him! Marotec was just displaying the same understanding of Nigerian politcis that many other Nigerians have and have displayed concerning this story. Many want to see him be tried for Societe General, at the very least. Acknowledging the political motivations and puppeteering behind his current travails does not in any way invalidate that.

      Finally, Marotec said “Good for you”, which I would expect nmany of us as Nigerians would know is very different from and contrary to when an Englishman says “Good on you”. It’s like when Yorubas say “O da fun e”. It means you’re getting your just desserts. It never means approval.

      Even if they were hired by APC, it’s nothing he doesn’t deserve. Do they want to run Kwara StAte like Libya? If he doesn’t leave power now what will befall him will be worse than Gaddafi because we Kwarans aren’t fools

      September 25, 2015 at 2:49 pm

      I will continue to say this: the APC is just a party fill of hypocrites and past criminals.

      so when they chose Saraki to represent the party as a senatorial candidate. .They didn’t know he was corrupt? When he won the senatorial seat under the APC they didn’t know he was corrupt? When he defected from the PDP. ..They didn’t know he was corrupt?

      When he campaigned tirelessly in February to march 2015…Following pres Buhari around…They didn’t know he was corrupt.

      I’ll continue to say this…..he’s only being prosecuted because he went against the party’s wish. If he did as they wanted ….would they have exposed him as a criminal in CCT?

      How many more criminals do we have lurking in APC?

      Nigerians OPEN your eyes and RECEIVE SENSE! APC is the same as PDP even worse.

Saraki uses Bible advantages

      Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

    I do not like Saraki one bit. Betrayal runs in his blood. However, this is how it starts. Wiston Churchill said ” failure to act when action would have been simple and effective, lack of good reasoning, and confusion of counsel, all these lead to endless repetition of history.” The APC house – a house built on sand. Buhari should be weary of all the desperate, vengeful blood suckers masquerading as change agents. Burn me once, shame on you; burn me twice, shame on me…… the saying goes… Buhari did not fight for democracy, so he can afford to hide his head in the sands. This is how it starts.

      I do not like Saraki either. Anyone remember that nauseating pension he awarded to himself? Saraki is bad like that. Good for him. Buhari should watch his back Tinubu is a desperate man.

      Having said that, l wish the people of LAGOS State will have the liver to come for “the Owner” of LAGOS State. The drug Lord and Jagaban of thieves who own half of Lagos. He is worse than Saraki.

      September 25, 2015 at 7:50 am

      Apc house was already built on concrete foundation before the likes of Saraki came to use it as climbing stone. Saraki was not one of the founding members. As always he used apc when it was convenient for him. The APC folks were always aware of this- Saraki told everybody who would listen after he came to join apc, a group that was kind enough to accommodate him “that he Saraki will tame the lion of bourdillon, he even added Emi ni mo so be”. The arrogant bastard didn’t know that people were listening and watching him. He is such a polarizing person. He has quarreled with everyone, from his father to his sister to his former party etc etc. look in order for the country to move on, they should remove him now-I believe one of the judgement the CCT an make is to ban him for life from holding political office. They should do that and end all these distractions. The man is an evil crook. His ugly wife that goes about pretending she supports women’s empowerment but patronizes the likes of Dino melayi a well documented wife beater and female molester. They should all just go away. Are they only ones in the country. Saraki this, Saraki that…when your own people too are feed up, it is time to take the high road.

    Though Bukola may not be a saint, he slogged it out with his late dad, Olusola Saraki when the dad wanted to impose his daughter, Gbemi to Kwara people as Governor after Bukola’s second tenure. Bukola told the late dad that governance in Kwara state is not meant for the Sarakis. What am I saying? Every Public office holder is a looter. Bukola’s sins was conniving with PDP (where as he’s an APC but PDP at heart) to clinch SP seat. They now use Code of conduct to rope him on because he made a false declaration of asset which any one could make. However, he didn’t play a smart move here cos declaration of asset by Public office holders is not in the Constitution. It is only by choice. He wanted to play along as good SP not knowing that banana peels were littered in tha National Assembly waiting to floor him as was done to late SP Chuba Okadigbo. I wish him luck.

It’s a good thing this is starting from your own Ilorin people(kwara central), don’t worry the Kwara North and South will come for you soon.

    I do not dismiss the fact that some people have tendency to be violent and it shouldn’t be condoned. However, in this case if you have tried everything as a patient citizen. People refused to vote for him yet somehow he is in power, this man and his family has refused to leave power. The only option is to stone them away, to cease every opportunity to show our disapproval and dislike.
    Kwara will be liberated by God’s special Grace but till then it’s not too early to start facing the consequences of your selfish actions.

    These are paid persecutors/actors to drive a point home. APC got out maneuvered in the senate and have resorted to thuggery to get their way.
    By the way, I have no dog in this game and couldn’t be bothered who the senate president. We just need an competent person and all this is distracting and not good for Nigeria.
    The APC focus was so much on winning presidency that they did not think about what the next step will/should be, hence all this mess.

      I will say running a country starts from selecting the right candidate to run it. Not a greedy, selfish, and wicked self imposed leader. if you need someone competent, then you can start devising means to make him leave his very important seat, because this thief of a human being is far from competent. The best he can do is to use the country;s money to own 10 more mansions.
      So, you grow up and discourage what is wrong.
