Abuja - New facts have emerged to show that the that the Federal Government is no longer interested in pursuing the case of forgery of the Senate Standing Orders, 2015, allegedly masterminded by Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
The government might have closed the case despite a fresh report of further investigation unearthing new facts about the forgery allegations.
The government according to Punch decided to discontinue with the trial in order to bolster the rapport with the Senate, which President Muhammadu Buhari “desperately needs to push through a number of its policies.
It was gathered that the Presidency is desperately wooing Saraki to its side and ensure his loyalty to Buhari.

This, it was learnt, was one of the reasons for the Senate President’s recent frequent visits to the President.
Recall that the police had submitted a fresh report of investigation to the Office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice through the National Prosecution Coordination Committee indicting Saraki and Ekweremadu.
