Senate President, Bukola Saraki has vowed not to resign despite the trials, allegations and tribulations he's currently going through.

According to a report by Punch Newspaper, Saraki vowed not to succumb to calls for his resignation claiming he remains innocent until proven guilty.

Responding to statements and call for his resignation, Saraki's Special Adviser on Media, Yusuph Olaniyonu, said the Senate President would not yield to the growing pressure.

In a statement by Olaniyonu, which was published by Premium Times, Saraki is neither contemplating resignation nor feeling guilty.

There’s a case in the Tribunal and a resultant appeal at the Court of Appeal," the statement read.

'The underlining philosophy of our legal system is that an accused person is presumed innocent until found guilty.”

'Those who are contemplating calls for resignation want to circumvent the judicial system. They are obviously being sponsored by some politicians.

'The Senate President is not contemplating any resignation. He will surely have his day in court,' Olaniyonu stated.

Saraki further blamed the call for his resignation on politicians, who are covetous and are yearning for his position.
