Saraki’s Trial Dangerous For #Nigeria - Tsav

The former commissioner of police made the revelation during a chat with newsmen in Makurdi, Benue state capital on Thursday, September 24.

Alhaji Abubakar Tsav, a former commissioner of police in Lagos state has revealed that the ongoing trial of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) is dangerous for the country, Daily Post report.

He warned that the country may be reverting to the days of former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, “when anti-corruption agencies were engaged in selective probes considering the circumstances shrouding Saraki’s ordeal.”

Speaking further, he said the probe is a witch-hunt, and questioned why it was not done a long time ago.

“Why did they not take it up when he was in PDP and romancing with the APC? I think we are creating a very dangerous trend in this country. Why did they wait until after 13 years before probing him? Why did they have to wait until he became the senate president before probing him?” he asked.

Meanwhile, Bola Tinubu, former governor of Lagos state and national leader of the All progressives Congress (APC) in his reaction to the ongoing trial of Saraki said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s government cannot overlook certain things in its fight against corruption.

The ongoing trial of the Senate president has generated a lot of bad blood among supporters and haters of Saraki as it was reported on Thursday, September 24, that he was stoned in Ilorin, capital of Kwara state as he arrived for Muslim Eid al-Adha prayers  but the Senate president has denied that such thing never happened.

As reactions continue to trail the probe of Saraki, chief Kenneth Gbagi, a former Minister of State for Education has said that if Saraki loved his honour, dignity and integrity, he would not stay a day longer in office.

It was an unbelievable reality on September 22, when the Senate president was docked for a 13-count charge of corruption levelled against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau following his asset declaration. But despite the ongoing trial of Saraki, the senate on Tuesday pledged their full support to him.
