The recent court victory and the rest of us
By Amb S.A. Lukman
Nigerians will never forget in hurry, the drama that ensued the reign of Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki while holding sway as chairman 8th National Assembly and senate president Federal Republic of Nigeria, from June 9th, 2015 till June 9th, 2019, the Waziri of Ilorin had suffered unprecedented malicious campaign of calumny, misinformation/media trial and defamatory sponsored falsehood and audio allegations (unfounded, cooked and baseless corruption allegations).
These made the latest Federal High court judgment in favour of former senate president a victory for all lovers of democracy, admirers of determined leader and believer of Judiciary as last hope of common man.
The victory granted days back in favour of Sen Dr Saraki marks its 5th Court case victory against the overrated Nigeria anti-Corruption institution EFCC, an omen that clearly portray the war as mere tool of Oppression and persecution of perceived enemy of incumbent Government and relevant opposition leaders, this further justified the stand of 8th senate on the credibility of the former Ag. Chairman who is now under heavier alleged corruption investigation.
Senator Saraki have been humiliated in media space most especially social media platforms, his image and reputation had been dragged in mud with these falsehoods and Packaged baseless corruption allegations while his personality has been misconstrued by many Nigerians mostly the Northerners.
The false asset declaration allegation came first, which the Former senate president won up till Supreme Court, allegations of forged senate rule also won, followed by about five cooked corruption allegations leveled against him by EFCC which he also won all at court of competent jurisdiction. The popular misinformation and false impression created by APC and PMB led Federal Government that the 8th Senate under Dr Bukola Saraki is responsible for her slow paste of performance and delivery of good governance sitting fierce relationship between the two arms as excuse is today a busted lie as the government is not doing any better even with rubber stamp National Assembly which approves all what is presented to them irrespective of its adverse effect on the Nation’s present and future including the alarming foreign borrowing spate which senator Saraki never allowed. As we can see today an ordinary minister of state have been empowered to rubbish and disrespect the National Assembly with a nod granted to Festus Keyamo to go ahead with public work recruitment without a reputable institution such as national assembly approval. A bad precedence Dr Saraki never allowed.
The revelations of corruption acts perpetrated by several appointee of government including violation of procurement act, contract scams, spending of in appropriated fund such as exposed late former chief of staff Mallam Abba Kyari’s recently leaked $1bn memo among others including Mr Ibrahim Magu erstwhile Ag chairman of EFCC, Mallam Abubakar Malami Attorney General and Minister Of Justice, Dr. Isa Pantami Minister of Communication and Digital Economy and H.E Dr Sen Godwill Akpabio Minister of Niger Delta affairs’ ongoing trial were another exoneration of Sen Bukola Saraki and 8th Assembly Patriotic stands, sincerity and loyalty to Nigerian people and not Nigeria cabals.
Coming to Kwara, one would believe that the takeover of power by opposition in the state who have brainwashed Kwarans and painted Sen Saraki as serial looter and fraudulent public figure ever lived or served in Kwara politics, today while we read unimaginable diversion of Local Government fund on monthly basis, hike contract figure with inferior job delivered, Covid-19 overrated daily spending and other undemocratic tendency of the incumbent Kwara State government.
The alleged 1bn acclaimed as Saraki’s monthly cut from kwara federal allocation remain unfounded, Sales of some Kwara investments including Shonga farm and harmony holdings unfounded and here is the vindication on the allegation of his Ilorin residence property alleged to be proceeds of fraud and corruption by Federal High Court.
Kwara is yet to become Dubai as promised by today’s government and her agents, SUBEB Staff not yet settled, new minimum wage implementation not in view, FOI bill not yet domesticated, family and friend dominate government office instead of competent technocrats among other failed campaign promises.
A sincere Nigerian, Patriotic Kwara indigene and all those who dream of better and greater Nigeria must come and celebrate Sen Abubakar Saraki at this moment. He is not only a winner but a conqueror, he has been a source of inspiration and hope for new Nigeria, while waiting and hoping he consider a bigger return into political space of Nigeria, please accept my apology on behalf of mislead Nigerians and Kwarans who peddle falsehood about your personality.
The architect of open and digital NASS, chairman of 8th Assembly with highest number of motions and bills passage in the history of Nigeria democracy.
Congratulations Distinguished Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki
