2019: We Shall Stand By Saraki, Come Rain, Come Shine

By Ikenga Chronicles July 8, 2018

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Kwara State chapter has said that it will stand by Senate President, Bukola Saraki, come rain, come shine.

This declaration was made by the State Chairman, Ishola Fulani, in reaction to the Supreme Court ruling on Friday that freed the Senate President from all false assets declaration charges.

In his statement, Fulani expressed joy at the Supreme Court ruling in favour of Saraki.

“As a party, we salute the Supreme Court for delivering that landmark judgement which represents a victory for democracy. We are happy that the judgement has reinforced our expressed belief that the Senate President is innocent of all the trumped up charges,” he said.

“You will recall that when the case began at the Code of Conduct Tribunal on September 22, 2015, I addressed a press conference to alert the people of Kwara State and indeed Nigerians that the case was politically motivated. It was a clear case of political witch-hunting.

“During the 1018 days that the case lasted, we made it a duty to alert the public about the twists and turns. We once raised an alarm that desperate politicians have hijacked the Code of Conduct Tribunal. We once said that the case was being remotely controlled by politicians. At the end of the tortuous legal fireworks of 1018 days, we are satisfied that justice has been delivered on the case.

“We recall that the torturous political persecution of our leader, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki began because he exercised his constitutionally – guaranteed right to contest for the position of Senate President against the wishes of some political forces in the All Progressives Congress. All manners of extra-judicial strategies and unconstitutional measures were deployed to humiliate, vilify, embarrass and remove the Senate President from office. We thank Almighty Allah for his victory and we congratulate the Senate President for this hard-won victory.”

Fulani noted that Saraki’s trial by his own party’s Government shows the “bond of unity” in the party has been weakened.

“Like we have always maintained, no political party ever survived war waged against itself. Indeed, it is now clear that the bond of unity and cohesion in the APC has been weakened, damaged, fractured and severed.

“As a party, we extend gratitude to distinguished Senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Honourable members of the House of Representatives and the entire institution of the National Assembly for standing firmly with the Senate President.

“We also commend all Nigerians who are lovers of democracy and believers of the rule of law for standing on the side of the rule of law and democracy during the political persecution period.

“Particularly, we salute our political structure, all members of APC in Kwara State and Nigeria as a whole for keeping fate with the Senate President. May Allah continue to stand by you.

“Finally, we wish to reiterate and categorically declare our unconditional loyalty to the leadership of the Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki CON. Come rain, come sun, we will continue to stand by the Senate President,” he said.
