Saraki Dumped By More Political Parties? Face Your Trial

These are troubling times for Bukola Saraki. The embattled senate president is losing grounds. 20 parties which included Labour Party (LP) have urged Saraki to avail himself of the opportunities offered in our laws to clear his name, and stop trying to frustrate his trial with many injunctions.

Members of the parties made their position known at a press briefing in Abuja, on Wednesday.

The National Chairman of the LP, Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, who addressed the press on behalf of the other political parties, said the briefing was necessitated by happenings within the country...

He said members of the opposition believe strongly that the ongoing trial of the Senate President at the Code of Conduct Tribunal had serious implications for the survival of democracy and this administration’s avowed commitment to fight corruption.

He also said that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration must do all within its power to ensure that the fight is carried out in such a way that it is not perceived as politically-motivated.

Abdulsalam said, “We want to put it on record that we are solidly behind President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption; a fight that we believe is crucial to the survival of our country.

“In fact, the reason corruption is still a primary issue for the Buhari administration is that previous attempts have not been as successful as they should be."

The opposition politicians said Saraki "must avail himself of the opportunities available to him in our laws, regardless of the conspiracies he may have suspected.”
