National Coordinator, North Central Coalition For Positive Change, Lachang Faden has described the ongoing saga currently faced by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, as political witch hunt by some of his detractors.
He also appealed to all who opposed the election of Saraki as Senate President to sheathed their swords and give peace a chance for fruitful legislation in the country.
Faden cautioned some government agencies against allowing themselves to be used in blackmailing the Senate President, thereby make a mess of Nigerian democracy.
He explained further that the agenda against Senator Saraki was purely false allegations, aimed at causing confusion in the Senate and the country at large. He urged the detractors to embrace peace for a sustainable democracy.
Faden called on those making frivolous and phantom allegations, aimed at disparaging the image of the Senate President, to desist and give him the needed support to end his tenure in the interest of democracy.
He noted that since the emergence of Senator Saraki as Senate president, he has been under one form of attack or the other from some APC senators and some selected party stalwarts.
According to him, “as faithful and loyal members of APC, we condemn any attempt capable of distracting the Senate President.
“We are happy that Senator Saraki is a man of strong will, despite the action of some people which pose a serious challenge to the development of democratic structures in the country.”
The coordinator applauded the resilience and selflessness of the Senate president and called for understanding, despite the recurrent crisis rocking the upper hollow chamber.
“You would recall that the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, filed an appeal challenging the ruling of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, which ordered the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, to arrest and produce him before the tribunal on Monday.”
He noted that on his ground of appeal, Senator Saraki, through his counsel, Joseph Daudu (SAN), submitted that the Tribunal erred in law and also acted without jurisdictions by assuming jurisdiction over the criminal trial of the appellant at the Code of Conduct Tribunal for a charge which is being challenged at the Federal High Court.
