The Deputy Senate President. Senator Ike Ekweremadu has said that the Senate President, Bukola Saraki is the most persecuted politician in Nigeria.

Ekweremadu said this while congratulating Senators for their understanding and unity in the past one year, on Thursday, June 9, 2016.

He also said the Senate President’s trouble started immediately he emerged as the leader of the Red chambers, against the wish of those he called the powers that be.

The Deputy Senate President also thanked the lawmakers for giving him their support, despite the fact that he is a member of the opposition – Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Saraki is currently standing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), for false declaration of assets.

The Senate President has constantly claimed that he is being victimised, adding that his trial is just a distraction.

The chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Danladi Umar recently accused Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s lawyers of tactically delaying his trial.
