Senators urge Bukola Saraki to Resign



SARAKI IN COURTSenate President, Bukola Saraki who is facing corruption charges by the Code of Conduct Bureau over false asset declaration during his tenure as Kwara State governor may end up tendering his resignation as the judgment of the Code of Conduct tribunal draws near.

According to Vanguard, Saraki was advised by some of his loyal senators who followed him to his Maitama residence after Tuesday’s trial at the court to consider the option of stepping down as the country’s number three citizen.

It was also reported, that a certain PDP senator who spoke to Vanguard on the condition of anonymity last Tuesday said that the Senate President may consider the option which has been presented to him to preserve the institution of the senate.

“I can confirm to you that at a special meeting held yesterday, we asked the Senate President to consider the option of resignation. We believe that doing so would preserve the institution of the Senate” the senator said.

    This certified low life, and a thief must be forced to resign as Speaker of the Nigerian Senate immediately. Bukola Saraki’s does not have an ounce of self respect left for himself, He is no longer fit to be the leader of the Nigerian Senate period. He should be arrested and send to jail. Maybe after that embarrassment, he will deem it proper to resign as the Speaker of the Nigerian Senate. His wife should also be arrested, and charged with the same offence. Birds of the same feather, flocks together. (Like husband, like wife.). Thieffie, thieffie, janko-Riko. Nigeria should proceed with maximum speed to recover all the properties acquired with the stollen money looted from the Nigerian treasury. Word. A word is enough for the wise. I’ m just saying.

      Please tell us which public office Saraki’s wife should resign from and which charges she should face? The charges of daring to have her own assets? Or the charges of having the boldness to buy property? Or what?

      ode, you are talking like an illiterate. His wife is not the one under trial. we have no issues with the wife.The law says you must declare all assets owned by you and wife and children under 18. He has made huge omissions and he has stolen multi billions belonging to all Nigerians over the years. That is the issue here. If you are their family friend or apologist of theirs or a beggar beneficiary of this looting, hide your dirty face and keep your meaningless comments to your self.

    Watch him file a phony case with the courts and the decision remains pending in Naija courts for 20+ years!!! In the mean time, he would have served like 5 terms. That is the story of Naija. Absolute ridicule!

    Gradually, gradually, he is getting to that point where he must make that decision to step aside so that Nigeria ( Senate) can move forward . He has bitten more that he can chew. He has been contending with military strategists, not Kwara politicians. The vulture they say is a patient bird.

    Saraki and the 40thieves, where are the senators? They forget that they are spending our money to show up in court for a criminal. They miss work and get paid. How can we trust such people to govern when they are fighting tooth and nail to defend their fellow criminal. Oga Ben Bruce you never tweet since this panamaleak, Werrin dey?  In saner climes,lawyers do not put their names down to support an unworthy cause even without taking a penny. In Naja, with lawyers bribing judges shielding criminals, and defending obvious criminals all in the name of making money for themselves. What a shame! BOSAN (Business Opportunity Senior Advocate of Nonsense) ,SAN (Senior Agberos of Nigeria and NASS with their evil devices.

    Gentlemen…………ladies of course; Before they use this drama to distract us let us not forget that they have not yet revealed their budget. They are spending OUR money(Yes a majority is free crude money, but our taxes join) without doing us the courtesy of telling(showing) us.

    More important in my opinion.
