Senate Rule Forgery: Saraki ‘Surrenders’, Says He’s Ready For Jail

June 28, 2016 – Senate Rule Forgery: Bukola Saraki ‘Surrenders’, Says He’s Ready For Jail

In a smart ploy to gain sympathy from Nigerians, embattled Senate President Bukola Saraki said he is ready to go to jail than to surrender his willingness to set things right at the Senate.

He described his latest Senate rule forgery charge and CCT trial as persecution by President Buhari.

In his words;

“This is a cross I am prepared to carry. If yielding to the nefarious agenda of a few individuals who are bent in undermining our democracy and destabilising the Federal Government to satisfy their selfish interests is the alternative to losing my personal freedom, let the doors of jails be thrown open and I shall be a happy guest,” the Senate President declared. Saraki, who stated this in a statement he personally signed in Abuja after his arraignment alongside his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu and two others, declared that members of the Senate leadership charged for forgery of the Senate Standing Orders 2015 (as amended), were innocent of the charges prevailed against them.

“Let it be abundantly clear, both as a citizen and as a foremost legislator, I will continue to rise above all the persecution and distraction that have been visited on me.

“I will remain true and committed to the responsibilities that my citizenship and my office impose on me. Without doubt, the highest of those responsibilities is the steadfast refusal to surrender to the subversion of our democracy and the desecration of the Senate.”

Saraki has made history as the first Nigeria’s Senate President to force himself to power.

He went against the rule of his party and deceived Buhari to become Senate President on June 9 2015.

    You must go to that jail in no distant time. Stop seeking for public sympathy.

    Saraki, I really love your courage. At least you’re ready to stand for what you believe in under the principle of democracy. You are indeed giving me a big surprise of my life that going to jail for this offense is a better option for redeeming our democracy For the first time I gave you credit for openly declared that you orchestrated fraud in the senate and you admitted wrong doing. If your jail term requires 5 years, I will be among the people that will solicit for reducing sentencing at least to 2 years because you have been cooperative with the prosecutors in this case. I hope Saraki case may be cited as a case study for revamping democracy in Africa.

    Am i a Seer, Prophet, Babalawo or Imam? May be i am just a gifted selfless free thinker. At last, my prediction since the day Saraki sold his birth right for a bowl of porridge that he would end up in prison has manifested. l wrote about him on the nest day he carried out political mutiny against our nation, Nigeria because i was very disturbed to see distortion of democracy in the hands of a bastard. My prediction about Fani ‘Were’ Kayode is about to manifest.Omo ale Yoruba.Like father, like son. He will soon be heading to the prison. That of mad man, Fayose is not far from manifestation. He may even take his own life to avert shame. Dino Melaye, be prepared, you can not and will not escape the sword of law. Nigeria treasury looters , beware of my writings.
