Corruption Trial: APC Senators Omoworare & Marafa Walk Out On Saraki As PDP Senators Pass Vote Of Confidence

There was drama in the senate as Nigerian Senators passed a vote of confidence on embattled Senate President, Bukola Saraki, at the resumption of plenary on Tuesday.

Saraki got the vote of senators after a motion was moved by Senator David Umaru and was seconded by Senator Ahmed Sani.

Saraki also got the backing of 84 lawmakers.

Umaru and Sani said they decided to show their support for Saraki because they do not want any external influence on the 8th assembly.

But what seemed like a fairy tale with an happy ending then took another turn when Senator Babajide Omoworare (APC-Osun East) who had initially endorsed Saraki asked that his name be struck out, claiming that he was not properly briefed on the purpose of the motion.

While Omoworare startled his colleagues, it was the action of Senator Kabir Marafa (Zamfara Central), who raised a point of order on the motion while plenary was ongoing on that brought about a short rowdy session on the floor of the senate.

Marafa later walked out of the session in peaceful protest.

To quell the tension in the senate, Ike Ekweremadu, the senate deputy president, apologised on behalf of Marafa, noting that such action would not repeat itself.

Saraki was docked last week at the Code of Conduct Tribunal for allegedly falsifying his assets as governor of Kwara state.

  1. Leadership is the ability to have good insight and do the right thing for your community. These buffoons parading themselves as Senator of Federal republic have no clue on what they were gathering for. They probably doing this so that whenever they find themselves entangle with the law, they will have back up. Now, my question for you dumb senators is, are you satisfy with the current state of affairs of this Countty? Are you sure you will be happy in your grave leaving this Country in shambles and perpetuity poverty because of your irresponsible act? and for your children and your grandchildren are you delighted that you are leaving them a good legacy? you have never gathered and discuss anything meaningful or how the future of this Country is heading or even the future of your children. All you think about is money and how your allowances will be increased. I have never read from newspaper page that Nigeria legislators have come up with a better idea to improve the lives of Nigerians or how to permanently eradicate the heinous crime like kidnapping, ritual killing etc. You are just getting paid for the job you did not work for and yet you are the highest paid lawmakers in the world. My advise for you clods is to leave Saraki case as it is otherwise all of you will be summon by CCT to come and say what you know about the money that you all have stolen.

  2. SENATOR BABAJIDE OMOWORARE IS A TYPICAL ******MAN, THEY ARE UNSTABLE IN EVERYTHING
    THEY CHANGE LIKE WEATHER IN NETHERLANDS!
