Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has praised the government for dropping forgery charges against Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

The charges against Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu were withdrawn on Thursday, October 6.

Atiku made his comments via a statement released by his Media Office on Friday, October 7.

“All hands need to be mobilised to tackle the current economic difficulties in the country, and get the nation out of economic recession. Both the executive and legislature need to come together to find solutions to the current economic recession by eliminating all issues that promote strife and mistrust,” Atiku was quoted as saying.

“Political crisis does little or no good in a democracy. All individuals and political forces in the country that still have issues should come together and resolve their differences for the good of the nation and the APC,” he added.
