A group of protesters in their hundreds have stormed the National Assembly demanding for the immediate resignation of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki.
The incident which took place on Tuesday was to protest the planned suspension of Senator Kabiru Marafa over alleged unguided statements against the Senate and the President of the Senate.
The group, Open Society Coalition, called on Saraki to immediately step-down in order for him to focus on his trial at the CCT.
The group had banners with various inscriptions at the entrance of the National Assembly such as: ‘Suspend Saraki, not Marafa’; ‘Stop suspending members’, ‘leave the Senate and face CCT’; ‘Democracy survives in inclusiveness, not in suspending people of different opinion’; ‘National Assembly, centre of Democracy not Fascist centre’.
It would be recalled that Saraki is currently facing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal over alleged failure to properly declare his assets.
