Saraki may resign soon over CCT trial

06 April 2016, 11:42

Abuja - Embattled Senate President Bukola Saraki may be asked to relinquish the senate president seat over his trial at the the Code of Conduct Tribunal over false assets allegation.

Some senators including those who had vowed to remain with him to the end of his trial at the anti-graft court asked the Senate President to consider the resignation option so as to save the Senate, as an institution.

The option was thrown to him at a special meeting held by a group of some loyal senators, who followed him to his Maitama residence, shortly after the end of Tuesday’s trial at the court.

Meanwhile senators of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) appeared to be at loggerhead with their counterparts in the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over the Senate President’s successor.

While the APC senators are insisting on producing Saraki’s successor, those of the PDP are favorably disposed to anointing one of their own as the new senate president.

A senator of the PDP fold said Saraki was given the option of resigning basically to save the institution of the legislature.
