Now that he has taken his plea, he should step aside, pending when he is found guilty, or acquitted.
The Trade Union Congress Chairman, in Enugu State, Chukwuma Igbokwe has called on the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to resign.
He said “Any public officer that is found to be corrupt should vacate the position, or step aside to allow the judicial process take its course. If he continues to occupy the position, he can subvert the course of justice.”
Adding that “Now that he (Saraki) has taken his plea, he should step aside, pending when he is found guilty, or acquitted.”
Igbokwe also said “Nobody is above the law. He should vacate the office for now and wait for the rule of law to take its course. In the current administration’s anti-corruption campaign, nobody should be spared. There should be no sacred cows and those in sensitive positions should step aside if they have been accused of corruption and taken to court.”
