The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kwara State has hailed the trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal over alleged false claims in his asset declaration, urging Kwarans not to show solidarity with the former governor.
The Kwara Chairman of PDP, Akogun Iyiola Oyedipo, told the embattled Senate president to instead face the charges leveled against him and stop trying to exonerate himself on the pages of newspaper.
“Senator Saraki should go and face the charges leveled against him. I don’t see anything he is doing to exonerate himself on the pages on newspapers”, Oyedipo said.
“I think that his claim that one of the charges happened in 2003 is uncalled for. It is one of the reasons why I urged Kwarans not to solidarise with him rather they should allow him to face the charges levelled him at the Code of Conduct Tribunal”, he added.
