He alleged that Saraki’s travail was born-out of his emergence as Senate President of the 8th National Assembly and Peoples Democratic Party, Sen. Ike Ekweremadu, was elected Deputy Senate President, against all odds, the ruling party could not force the Senate president out of office.

He alleged that the hatred for Saraki who though was a member of PDP was caused by sluggishness of Chief John Odigie-Iyegun, former National Chairman of APC.

PRESIDENT MUHAMMAFU BUHARI

“We did everything to jail Saraki….”

“…This same happened during the tenure of Saraki who was a mouth hustling political, a smart boy. He outsmarted Chief Odigie-Oyegun. During the inauguration of the 8th National Assembly, he (Oyegun) was with APC National Assembly members in a meeting at the National Conference Centre.

“So, Saraki gathered the PDP members in the National Assembly and elected the Principal Officers including the PDP Deputy Senate President and they got it.

“We gave him (Saraki) robbery at Offa Bank robbery in Kwara State. We couldn’t jail him.

“There is nothing we didn’t do to frustrate him. At a time, he was docked. He sat in the dock for corruption charges, yet, he served his tenure as Senate President for four years”, he said boastfully.
