Saraki must face trial, at least 20 political parties say

28 April 2016, 09:00

Abuja – At least 20 political parties have called on Senate President Bukola Saraki "to avail himself of the opportunities offered in our laws to clear his name".

According to Punch, the parties included the Labour Party and 19 other registered opposition political parties.
The parties said this during a press conference on Wednesday in Abuja.

The opposition politicians said: "While Saraki's claim that he was being persecuted by his party should not be swept under the carpet, we also believe that he must avail himself of the opportunities available to him in our laws, regardless of the conspiracies he may have suspected."

Saraki on Monday raised an alarm over alleged plots by his opponents to force him out of office.

Saraki raised the alarm in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Yusuf Olaniyonu.

“The Office of Senate President has alerted members of the public on the plan by some politicians to create public disorder tomorrow through a sponsored demonstration that will seek to ground human and vehicular activities on some major streets of Abuja, particularly, those leading to the National Assembly Complex.

“We have information that the sponsors have been deploying resources to ensure that a sizable crowd was mobilized to create chaos, confusion and tension around the streets of Abuja. Money and other materials are being provided for the organizers by the sponsors,” read part of the statement.
