We are not assuring Nigerians that our efforts alone would get Saraki out of office but we will do the needful as responsible lawmakers and would encourage Nigerians to take it up from where we stop.
Some Senators in the upper chambers of the National Assembly have said they will not stop until the Senate President vacates his position.
This is coming on the heels of the trial of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
Punch Newspapers reports that the Senate Unity Forum is spearheading the fight to remove Saraki.
One of the members of the forum, who spoke to Punch Newspapers said “Posterity will judge us if we continue to condone corruption in the legislature instead of distancing ourselves from it.”
The source also said “It is our intention to reach out to more senators who had yet to see things from the same perspective like us and we will play our role and leave the rest for Nigerians to judge.The Senate president may rule us out of order while his supporters may also make noise and shout us out but we will say our own and allow history to be the judge.”
Adding that “Nigerians know what is going on and majority of our people now have access to the mass media more than ever before, so they will also know the role that each senator plays in the whole saga.”
“We are not assuring Nigerians that our efforts alone would get Saraki out of office but we will do the needful as responsible lawmakers and would encourage Nigerians to take it up from where we stop," the source said.
