– It stated that nothing must happen to the Senate President
Following the report disclosing that Nigerian Anti-graft agency, the Economic Financial and Crimes Commission EFCC will probe the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, the Peoples Democratic Party PDP in response have condemned the move.
The PDP in a statement via it Spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan yesterday stressed that the moved by the EFCC against Senator Bukola Saraki is part of a larger plot for a renewed clamp down on key office holders in the opposition party.
According to Kola Ologbodiyan all of these is done to furstrate the determination of the party to win at the Presidential election tribunal.
The Opposition party stated that the new probe on Bukola Saraki is a desperate attempt to nail him while members of the APC with highly incriminating record are left aside.
Also the opposition party added that no harm must come to Sen. Bukola Saraki.
Below is an extract of the statement released by the PDP,
“The party says nothing else can explain the Federal Government’s obnoxious and distasteful resort to intimidation and evidence-fishing, just to nail Senator Saraki at all costs, even when nothing incriminating has been found in his stewardship as Governor of Kwara state, after several investigations.
“The Federal Government is hounding Senator Saraki even after he has been prosecuted but discharged and acquitted by the Supreme Court, after the government failed to substantiate claims of false asset declaration against him.
“The PDP holds that this renewed witch-hunt tailored against Senator Saraki and perceived opposition leaders further confirms that the Buhari Presidency and the APC have become frenetic over the overwhelming evidence that our party will present at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal.
“Moreover, our party already has information on how certain elements in the APC have plotted to cash in on the new siege to harm key leaders of our party, under certain guise.
“The APC is called upon to note that Nigerians are already aware of the truth in all issues leading to this renewed harassment of the Senate President. We insist that no harm must come to Senator Saraki or any member of his family.”
