IGP vs Saraki: Presidency clashes with Senator Sani | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


The Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie and the Senator representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, have clashed over the face-off between the executive and the legislature.

There is a feeling among the lawmakers that the Presidency is prosecuting the lawmakers which has heightened tension in the polity.

While the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki was during the week summoned by the Nigerian Police over his alleged involvement in the deadly Offa robbery attack in Kwara State, the National Assembly held a joint session on Tuesday where issues of a posible impeachment of the President were on the front burner.

Senator Sani took to his twitter handle to say that, “Supporting the Executive to persecute the lawmakers is setting a dangerous precedent to democracy and nurturing the seed of absolute totalitarianism.”

And in a swift reaction, Onochie attacked the lawmaker, saying, “Turning the Nigerian Senate into a PLC that serves only the Senate cabal is a gross betrayal of the people of Nigeria who voted you to represent them.

 “Some of you were rejects until you rode on the back of the leader of the executive, @MBuhari who you now seek to frustrate.”

  1. Walahi, enough of all these stupid talks by these unreasonable senators and honourable in quotes.... Why were they in that office? Is it not in the National interest or is it personal or because of God fathers? The wrath of God awaits you all as you all know that the masses are toothless bulldogs which the process made us to be but u should all know that there will always be a way to reject all these madness when the time comes. If you don't commit crimes or found in the midst of crimes would there be any thing called attack..... Or you want the IGP to be as stupid as you are all in seeing where a sitting senate president is bn mentioned by set of thugs and armed robbers and you still felt he shouldn't be invited? in fact he ought to have bn impeached ordinarily because he was associating with murderers and here we are passing vote of confidence on him because you are all same..... Wait wait wait and let's see you idiots riding around.... The fools
