My Trial Won’t Disturb Senate Proceedings – Saraki


Senate President Bukola Saraki said on Monday that his on-going trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal will not disturb the activities of the Senate.

Saraki, according to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Alhaji Yusuph Olaniyonu, stated this after the Tribunal Chairman, Mr. Danladi Umar announced that the proceedings in the trial involving him will now hold on a day-to-day basis.

The statement recalled that at the preliminary stage of the trial, senators had always accompanied the senate president to the tribunal each time the case came up for hearing.

But Saraki said now that the trial proper has commenced and the Senate is in session, he would not want the trial to affect legislative business.

He said, “I am the one on trial not the Senate. Even though I have been overwhelmed by the solidarity displayed by my colleagues, it is important that the work of the Senate is not unduly affected by this process.

The senate president affirmed that the legislative body being an institution, would not be affected by the absence of any of the principal.
