Senate declares war on Presidency over Saraki’s trial

09 February 2016, 11:13

Abuja - A fresh crisis is brewing between the Presidency and the Senate, reports The Sun.

The impending crisis follows the failed attempt by Senate President Bukola Saraki to stop his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

The Senate has accused the Presidency and some leading members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) of masterminding Saraki’s travails.

Senators loyal to the Senate President said Saraki’s trial is simply a case of political vendetta.

The senators have vowed to stand by Saraki and moved against those pushing for his downfall.

The senators said they are ready to launch a full-scale war against the Presidency and certain people in the APC, who they accused of masterminding Saraki’s travails. 

Saraki’s loyalists in the Senate also lampooned some of their colleagues who have been calling for his resignation.  

Saraki is currently ‎facing a 13- count charge of alleged corruption and false declaration of assets.

The Supreme Court last Friday threw out Saraki’s appeal to stop his prosecution.
