The situation of the Senate president, Bukola Saraki, occasioned by his assets declaration case, remains a distraction to the legislative arm government and it is endangering Nigeria’s democracy, a member of the House of Representatives, Rep Igariawey Iduna, has said.
He alleged that the crisis was the handiwork of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which according to him could backfire.
He argued that due to the numerical strength of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Senate, the party would always determine who occupied the Senate president’s office.
“It’s not true that PDP legislators are happy. Rather, they feel that the exercise is politically motivated and endangers our democracy. PDP feels (that) the exercise is a mere distraction.”
