Saraki: Rule Of Law Reigns Under Buhari, Says APC Chieftain
REACTING to the appearance of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal over 13 counts charges against him, a chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano, Alhaji Gambo Abdullahi Danpass, said that the rule of law is prevailing under the present administration.
Speaking at a media chat, Danpass challenged said that Nigerians should celebrate the development as a show of improved administration of justice in the country.
“ Nigerians should celebrate the rule of law now. Other countries have confidence in Nigeria now than ever before because Buhari has upheld the rule of law,” Danpass said.
According to him, for the fact that number three citizen of the country is facing corruption charges today is enough reason for other key political office holders to tread softly.
“Other political office holders should understand that the era of impunity is over”.
On the allegation that the Presidency could have a hand in Saraki’s travail, he described it as mischievous and immaterial, adding that the Presidency and Code of Conduct Tribunal are two separate bodies independent of each other.
He said: “How could President Buhari interfere. Democracy has come to stay in Nigeria. I am therefore calling on President Buhari to be very cautious with the people he is relating with.’
