A former national officer of the APC, Yekini Nabena, has demanded the removal of Bukola Saraki as the senate president of Nigeria due to the number of corrupt cases he's currently navigating.

According to Nabena, Saraki has brought shame upon the country's legislature and his senate presidency is no longer legitimate. "No Senate President has brought disrepute to the exalted position like the current occupier," he said in a statement issued on Monday.

“Senator Saraki cannot continue to preside over a lawmaking organ of a government that is vigorously fighting corruption in Nigeria when he has a load of corruption allegations hanging on his neck.

“As it is today, the case of his alleged false assets declaration is ongoing. There are revelations about his ties to offshore businesses in tax havens as contained in the Panama Papers.

“For Saraki and his docile senator friends to leave their houses and head straight to court, sit in the accused box on criminal charges, this is enough an indictment. Yet, they will come back to the upper house and take charge of lawmaking for the country.”

"This manner of impunity is killing every sane citizen and also rubbishing our democracy in the eyes of other nations.
