“Desperate” and “Spineless” Politicians Out to Sponsor Mass Protests against me – Saraki

Saraki Official PortraitSenate President Bukola Saraki who is facing trial for false declaration of assets when he was at the helm of affairs in Kwara State has come out to bring to public notice over alleged plot by some politicians to sponsor mass protests against him to force him to resign.

The nation’s third citizen whose name was listed in the infamous #PanamaPapers leak said that the politicians are “already distributing money and other materials to some faceless civil society Organisations, market men and women associations and other shadowy groups with a view to instigate demonstrations in Lagos, Abuja and Ilorin starting from Monday, April 11”

The statement signed by Saraki’s Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Yusuph Olaniyonu, read in part:

They believe that the on-going trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal provides them the opportunity to stampede Dr. Saraki out of office so that their defeated objective of getting their lackey into the office of Senate President will be realized. This is another desperate move by these spineless politicians to achieve through the back door what they failed to realize on the floor of the Senate.

We are alerting members of the public to the antics of these desperate politicians which may result into breach of public peace, order and health. Dr. Saraki is a peace-loving and law abiding politician. The trial at the CCT is just beginning and while the prosecution’s witness has started giving evidence, he is yet to be cross-examined by the defence team. The defence has also not opened its own case. We urge members of the public to patiently wait for the conclusion of the case.

Since the fundamental principle of our legal system is that an accused person is presumed innocent until he is found guilty, Dr. Saraki will not allow any distraction to take him away from his responsibility as President of the Senate and Chairman of the National Assembly.

    Nigerian politicians are shameless and off course he won’t resign. Even if a Nigerian Politician goes to prison, there won’t mind still governing from their prison cells.

      Abi? Until he is disgraced out, spat on, beaten and kicked out. Until he is dragged in the street with his agbada over his head-pride and stubbornness will destroy you. No One Brought this on you, you did this to yourself. It is time to stop blaming people and take responsibility for your actions. It is not to late to save face. We Will Eventually Kick You OUT and you WILL Be Stomped ON!

      Lmao in which fantasy world are you that they’ll drag someone out like Americans did to Gaddafi, STORY! Nigerians can bully their neices and call them FAT, bully their nannies, bully their wives, but once it’s an oga at the top… Zero! They’d rather pray for change while kissing up to the person in power to benefit themselves. A bunch of sentimental cowards who raise their children to do the same.
      Nigerians didn’t pull or drag out ABACHA, they were “praying” for him to die. They didn’t pull out IBB during the June 12th saga. They didn’t even pull out Alamyeseigha or Ibori, it’s now Saraki they’ll pull out. Lmao abeg

    I am so angry with this news, its only in nigeria that a serving politician will still hold his position as a senate president,as the case here, while being involved in a court case about corruption charges. Step down my friend and stop yarning dust. Msheww.

    Sir, olorun jina siyin. When you amass all the wealth and fame on this earth, you will leave with nothing. Bet you didn’t learn from your colleague they just buried. Your desperation for power knows no bound. How can you be addressing the same public that calls you evil to be mindful of politicians. Evil men like you or are you different? I wish your wife visit BN sometime to read the comments and see how people are so tired of your shameless desperation. Ati oko Ati iyawo alainironu, Awon onise ibi ti won le rorun wo.

    Did sarathief just say “peace-loving and law-abiding”? now I know this guy is gullible. hey! how did he get to the office- wasn’t it through the back-door? only a desperate and spineless nuisance could have done what you did. It’s hightime this bastard is removed through whatever means. Perhaps you’ve not been told, saraki you are a disgrace to humanity and your lawyers are as well,corrupt as you because you are a dunce and I won’t be surprised if you don’t know the meaning of honorary. they should have told you resignation is the most honorary thing for you to do. you claimed the Panama companies are you wife’s inheritance from her family but moments later, her lawyers said they belong to her to mention this alone. You want to seek refuge in a law court-the judiciary that is corrupt like the word corruption itself abi? Impatiently we are waiting. must there be protest before you bow out? don’t you have shame?

    Solidarity with a thief means that you are all thieves. Shameful! We know you are ever biased in your judgement. I wonder how your people only choose to be in love with thieves that are against PMB, but in your small mind you still hate Yorubas with exception of Fayose and Saraki and others like them. Una hatred no be for this life. Olorun de juyin lo. Oju yin lo ma se. Oya tun soro, alainironu.

    Bukola Saraki is obsessed with power. Your obsession with power has clouded your judgment. You deliberately broke the law, You have no other alternative other than to resign from your position as the Speaker of the Nigerian Senate. You and your silly little actions has brought disgrace to the office of the Spraker of the Nigerian Senate. The audacity to come out and start calling people’s names such as Cowards and spineless shows how shallow your mind is. You have no respect for yourself, the office of the Speaker of the Senate and above all, the Nigerian Constitution. One thing I want you to Understand is that, Nigeria is greater than all of us. You have surely become a stinker. Nobody wants a crook as Speaker. You need to leave now before it is too late for you. A word is enough for the wise. I’ m just saying.

    @Gee you’re right, @somebody needs to make more research before dropping comment. Bukola Saraki is greedy and if Nig Govt. refused to punish him, God will, it is even better for God to punish him because it will make more sense. What else does he want? he was born with a silver spoon schooled abroad and saw how things run, we don’t need to be paid to protest against him.
