Marafa said Saraki’t travails can only end with an instruction from the All Progressives Congress, the party under which he was elected into the Senate.

Marafa, who is the spokesperson for of the Unity Forum of the Senate that is tackling Saraki, said only the party could decide if to end the forgery case against the Senate president.

Speaking on the crisis rocking the Senate, the legislator said as a loyal party man, he and his colleagues in the Unity Forum would withdraw the charges against Saraki if the party says so.

The Herald quoted Marafa as saying: “We didn’t go to court because we didn’t like the face of those that emerged, but this is the will of our party.

“During the 7th assembly, we accorded the ruling party at that time the utmost cooperation and we knew the committees that we were given that time.

“But now, we are in power it is our own time and we should be accorded all the necessary cooperation.

“We should be seen to respect the party. If the party says withdraw the case, we will on to withdraw the case.”

Saraki and Ekweremadu had been arraigned for allegedly forging the rules of the eighth Senate but the duo had maintained their innocence.

Ike Ekweremadu also recently revealed that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is merely wasting it time trying to remove him from office.
