If You Dare Remove Saraki, The Worst Will Happen — Baraje Warns APC, Presidency

A member of the APC in Kwara State, Abubakar Kawu Baraje has warned that the worst will happen if the Senate President, Bukola Saraki is removed from office, as the ruling APC, may “have the PDP taking over the Senate presidency and deputy.” 
Baraje, who was an acting Chairman of PDP, made this assertion in an interview with journalists in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital. He claimed that no other Senate president has suffered “dry, blatant, political tyrannical and open persecution” as Bukola Saraki.
Baraje said prior to the 2015 general elections, the APC had only three states in the North Central but “with a dint of hard work, Saraki delivered the zone 100 percent.”

He added that the APC should be proud of producing the Senate President, stressing that “The PDP episode with Tambuwal (former House of Reps Speaker) is still fresh in history. The PDP then didn’t throw the baby away with the bath water, knowing fully well that such move will be counterproductive. 
Trying to compare Saraki's case with that of Tinubu, the Kwara State politician said: “the case of Saraki has not followed due process and rule of law. It was the due process that was missing in the case of Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, and he was discharged but not acquitted. So, why is Saraki’s case different?

“So, as regards whether we are comfortable with where we are and whether we are joining other groups, every politician has aspirations about the development of his people, and if you cannot achieve it in one place, you go to another place." 

But Baraje failed to mention that Tambuwal had no case of corruption with EFCC or Code of Conduct.
