Abuja - The recent withdrawal of the forgery case against Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, must pave way for the legislature to resuscitate the economy.
This is according to the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, who hailed the withdrawal as “a welcome development at this crucial time.”
“With these forgery charges found not to apply, it is good that they be dismissed so that the national assembly may focus on this important work ahead,” he said.

Tinubu said while those involved might understandably feel a sense of relief or vindication, it was no time for them to celebrate or to believe all is well with the nation because all had turned out well for them on this matter.
“All is not well,” said Tinubu.
“Throughout the nation, the people stagger and groan under the weight of economic hardship. This government and our party must hear and respond to their plea. We must lead the way.”
Tinubu said Saraki and Ekweremadu must now rededicate themselves to fulfilling the progressive tenets of the APC and to honoring the promises the party made to the people.
“Now that you have overcome this legal battle, you must dedicate yourselves to helping Nigeria win the greater war against poverty, despair and failure.”
Tinubu called for unity.
“No matter our past difference, in this effort we must stand united in purpose and resolve. Nigeria must do more than survive. It must thrive.”
