Senators Beg Bukola Saraki to Resign or Be Disgraced Out of Office

Senate President, Bukola Saraki

Some senators have grown agitated over the lingering false assets declaration trial of Senate President, Bukola Saraki that they have urged him to resign.

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki has been asked by his colleagues to resign following the commencement of his false assets declaration trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

According to the senators, it would be better if he resigned than to be shamed out of office.

Yesterday (Wednesday) Saraki's legal team failed to secure an adjournment of the case leading many to conclude that the trial will continue in earnest.

However, after the court session, some Senators pleaded with the Saraki to consider resigning.

According to Vanguard, the request was made during a special meeting held by a group of Senators, who were said to have escorted him to his Maitama residence.

A senator of the PDP fold, who spoke to Vanguard late yesterday, but on condition that his identity would not be mentioned, said Saraki was given the option of resigning basically to save the institution of the legislature.

”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" he said, refusing to speak further.

Asked whether the Senate President was considering the resignation option, the lawmaker said  "This was just thrown at him this evening. We believe that he would do the right thing".
