Saraki became Senate President in “a fraudulent manner” – Sagay

Itse Sagay, the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) has said Senator Bukola Saraki fraudulently became the Senate President.

But the PACAC chairman, however, agreed that his defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) does not annul his position as the Senate President.

Sagay who spoke in Abuja on the sidelines of a workshop on the ‘United Kingdom Unexplained Wealth Order (UWO)’, organised by PACAC, the UK National Crime Agency and the Department for International Development (DfID) said Saraki should relinquish his position as a matter of honour.’

He said; “He should relinquish his position as a matter of honour. He’s not compelled by law to do so. He needs to be removed by two-thirds majority”, The Nation quoted him as saying.

“He got there because he was in APC, even though he got there by subterfuge, which is typical of him. He got there in a cheeky, fraudulent manner.

“Nevertheless, for him to be removed, they need two-thirds, not of the Senate, but of those present and voting at a meeting.

“It doesn’t have to be everybody. It’s those who happen to be there. Once they meet the quorum of one-third, and he is there, he can be removed by two-thirds of that one-third.”
