About 50 Senators cutting across different political
parties in the senate, convened an emergency meeting in
Abuja on September 19th where they discussed the
Code of Conduct Tribunal’s invitation to Senate
President Bukola Saraki over his alleged false
declaration of assets.
Daily Trust reports that the senators at the meeting
exonerated President Buhari of being behind the current
crisis facing the senate President but accused “a cabal”
within the presidency who they say is instigating the
government institutions against Senate President Saraki.
Rising from the meeting which lasted for about 4 hours
with some senators joining the meeting via telephone,
the convener of the meeting, Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah
said they had unanimously resolved to support the anti-
corruption war of President Buhari and also to deal
decisively with the cabal.
“We have resolved to use all available powers under the
constitution to ensure that no cabal exists and run the
government on behalf of Buhari and we have also
resolved to deal decisively with the cabal,” he said.
Also another senator who spoke on the condition of
anonymity after the meeting said
“Our colleagues were angry at the beginning of the
meeting because they were initially suspecting that the
President has hand in the trial of Saraki.
But after heated debate, they understood that Buhari
was not responsible for it. One of our colleagues
present at the meeting suggested that the Senate
should reconvene on Monday in order to address the
challenge.
His suggestion, however, did not see the light of day as
we resolved to use other channels to address the
challenge.”.
