Nigeria's democracy is on trial - Ekweremadu

28 June 2016, 20:00

Abuja - Nigeria's Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has compared his ongoing forgery trial in an Abuja Federal High Court as to that of putting the country's democracy on trial, Naij reports.

Ekweremadu is accused along with Senate president, Bukola Saraki for the alleged forging of the Senate Standing Rules which saw the two elected to power in 2014.

The deputy Senate president in a statement said that it is deeply troubling to note that people who swore to uphold the law are now spreading rumours to tarnish the reputation of two law abiding citizens.

"It is all the more disheartening that people who should know better use the colour of their office to pursue private vendettas against people they disagree with," he said.

News24 Nigeria reported previously that The President has strongly dismissed the insinuation by Saraki that President Muhammadu Buhari was operating a "government within a government."
