The Arewa Youth Vanguard has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of victimising the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

The youth group also frowned at what it called the continued persecution of the Senate President.

The group’s spokesman, Mallam Abdullahi Ibrahim said ‘’It has come to our notice that some powerful politicians are behind the witch hunting of Dr. Saraki, we as a group also condemned the silence of the party and Mr. President over the trial of Dr. Saraki. If not witch-hunting, how can a number three citizen be brought before the court over his asset declaration form 13years ago and the party he belongs to will not come out to show solidarity or support him.’’

APC chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun recently said the possible removal of Senate President might be a sacrifical change.

The group also took a swipe at Femi Falana over his comments on the summoning of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) chairman, Justice Umar Danladi by the Senate.

They said  ‘’The senate is the highest law-making body in Nigeria. It has legitimate powers to invite anybody.’’

Adding that ‘’Due process has never been followed in the trial process, and renowned legal practitioners like Falana should know that.’’

Bukola Saraki, in what seemed to be a show of defiance, showed up at the venue of the CCT sitting over an hour later than the start time.
