Pressure is mounting on the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to resign, following incriminating evidence tendered against him in the ongoing Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) trial.

The Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders (CACOL) has joined the call for Saraki’s resignation.

Sahara Reporters reports that the Executive Chairman of CACOL, Mr. Debo Adeniran said "Someone with a poor reputation such as his isn’t fit to be called or be elected as a Senator not even to talk of becoming the Senate President. “                        

 Adding that "With such a background and considering that he  oscillates between sitting in the criminal suspects’ box in the Code of Conduct Tribunal as a criminal suspect and sitting as President of the Senate in the hallowed Chambers of the National Assembly as the President of the Senate doubling as the Chairman of the National Assembly, the situation becomes an aberration and makes Saraki a misfit to occupy a seat in the Nigerian Senate in the first place and unfit to continue to occupy the exalted position of the Senate Presidency.”

Adeniran also said "Should he refuse to resign, the Senate must wield the big stick by commencing his impeachment process immediately.”

Meanwhile,  an operative of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Michael Wetkast  revealed that Saraki used funds from the Kwara state coffers to purchase choice properties in different locations.
