President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki assures that he is not afraid of becoming a convict for his actions towards revealing that there are “government within the government of His Excellency President Buhari.”

Embattled Senate President, Saraki while revealing that there are powerful people in President Buhari’s government who are controlling him, and have allegedly seized the apparatus of Executive powers to pursue a nefarious agenda said:

“This is a cross I am prepared to carry. If yielding to the nefarious agenda of a few individuals who are bent in undermining our democracy and destabilizing the Federal government to satisfy their selfish interests is the alternative to losing my personal freedom, let the doors of jails be thrown open and I shall be a happy guest.”

In a press statement signed by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on media and publicity, “This claim by Senator Saraki would have been more worth the while, if it had been backed with more information.”

“If he had proceeded to identify those who constitute the “government within the government,” it would have taken the issue beyond the realm of fiction and mere conjecture.” The statement continued.

“But as it stands, the allegation is not even worth the paper on which it was written, as anybody can wake from a troubled sleep, and say anything.”

Saraki, who frowned at the Athoney General of the Fedration’s action, describing it as a violation of the principles of separation of power, said:

“In our view, the charges filed by the Attorney General represent a violation of the principle of the Separation of Powers between the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch as enshrined in our Constitution. Furthermore, it is farcical to allege that a criminal act occurred during Senate procedural actions and the mere suggestion demonstrates a desperate overreach by the office of the Attorney General. These trumped up charges is only another phase in the relentless persecution of the leadership of the Senate.”

According to Femi Adesina, “The Attorney-General of the Federation is the Chief Law Officer of the state. It is within his constitutional powers to determine who has infringed upon the law, and who has not.”

“Pretending to carry an imaginary cross is mere obfuscation, if, indeed, a criminal act has been committed. But we leave the courts to judge.”

“To claim that President Muhammadu Buhari is anybody’s stooge is not only ridiculous, but also preposterous. It is not in the character of our President.”
