2 Min Read

The Senate President and his deputy are currently in an ugly legal over whether or not they forged senate standing rules.

The case has gotten widespread publicity and has already divided opinion everywhere with some believing it is the machination of political enemies while others believe he could indeed have done it and deserves to be prosecuted.

According to Sahara Reporters, the Senate President has now resorted to begging to have the charges against him and his deputy dropped. According to Sahara Reporters sources, Saraki met with Attorney General of the Federation Abubakar Malami at the premises of the Senate when Mr. Malami, accompanied by Ita Enang, President Muhammadu Buhari’s special assistant on the National Assembly, arrived to see Senator David Umaru, Head of the Senate committee on the judiciary.

The sources say that the meeting saw Saraki pleading with Malami to not join in his prosecution as he was innocent of the charges and that they should be dropped if possible.

The AGF was said to be sympathetic but remained resolute that the trial must go on. The meeting ended with Malami deciding to remain neutral on the affair.

It has been whispered that this could mean that Malami’s appearance before the senate committee might be hostile.

Already it is said by Sahara Reporters sources that the Senate is divided on the appearance of Malami in the first place with one saying  “Some members feel that the invitation to Malami to appear is solely intended to bully him so as to force him to withdraw charges against Dr. Saraki and Senator Ekweremadu.”
