Senate President Saraki’s World Press:
The Senate President added that the barricade of the National Assembly gate by security officials was a show of shame which should not have happened in the place instance.
He said the incident was an act of cowardice by those who sought to execute an illegal impeachment without the backing of the law.
Senator Saraki, however, reiterated an earlier warning where he said there was “a government within a government,” stressing that it beat his imagination how such an incident was allowed to happen.
Although Saraki commended Acting President Yemi Osinbajo for his quick response to the issue, he noted that the damage control has not addressed how Tuesday’s incident occurred.
