Saraki Being Persecuted – ATIKU


There were strong indications that the Federal Government of Nigeria, FGN, is persecuting a former President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki.

This submission was made known on Tuesday (today) by the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in February 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar.

Atiku argued that the fresh investigation of Saraki by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over his tenures as Kwara State Governor, between 2003 and  2011 and Senate President from 2015 to 2019, objectively could be seen as persecution instead of prosecution.

According to Atiku, “Saraki, the immediate past Senate President, is one of the most investigated politicians in Nigeria. 

“He has been investigated and prosecuted all the way to the Supreme Court and has prevailed against his accusers. It was expected that that should have been the end of the matter.

“However, the revival of previously investigated cases and the fact that Saraki was politically opposed to the administration of  Muhammadu Buhari seems to give strong grounds for objective bystanders to conclude that his current travails have gone beyond prosecution and are now tending towards persecution.”
