Lagos Nigeria: The Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC), Lagos State Chapter, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, has expressed that the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, the Senate Deputy President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu and the Director of the State Security Service (DSS), Mr Lawal Musa Daura, should be sacked.

He said Saraki ought not to be occupying the seat of the Senate President when the corruption charges levelled against him before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) is still on-going. “Senator Saraki is facing corrupt charges at CCT and yet he still sits as the President of the Senate. It has not happened before. The late Chuba Okadigbo was impeached. Evan Enwerem stepped aside and so was Adolphus Wabara for similar offences. But here is Saraki sitting tight in the Senate and going to CCT. This is an aberration, an affront, an attack on the integrity of this government, an attack on constituted authority and an attack on civilization,” said Igbokwe.

On Ekeweremadu he expressed that the position of the Deputy Senate President belongs to the ruling APC government; hence Ekweremadu, who is a member of the opposition PDP, ought not to be the Deputy Senate President.

He also wondered why the DSS, led by Musa Duara, that is directly under the Presidency should be working against Buhari by submitting what he called two baseless and spurious reports about the Acting Chairman of EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, on the same day.

Speaking further he expressed that Saraki, Ekweremadu and other Senators have ganged up against Magu, working in connection with some people in DSS office. He commended the fight against corruption, saying it has achieved a monumental success so far, but expressed fear that if both the President and Vice President failed to address the drift in the fight, the APC-led government may lose momentum.

He added the regime would have achieved more than what it has now if it had paid attention to behind the scene moves during the formative stages leading to the emergence of the 8th Senate.
“The emergence of Bukola Saraki as the Senate President and the opposition as the Deputy Senate President remains a fundamental mistake the leadership of APC made. This grave mistake is still haunting the APC presidency to date,” he submitted.
