In Nigeria, we almost don’t know what ‘normal’ is, anymore.
The Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Egba in Ogun State, Rt. Rev’d Emmanuel Adekunle has stated that there is no moral justification for the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to continue holding on to his position, despite the allegations of corruption leveled against him.
Addressing newsmen yesterday on the pre-synod programmes for the first session of the fourteen synod of the diocese, held at the Bishops Court, Onikolobo, Abeokuta, he advised Saraki to resign from office and face his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT over false assets declaration.
While also faulting frantic moves by members of the Senate to amend the Act setting up the Code of Conduct Bureau and its tribunal, Adekunle said: “Let the masses use their rights in cautioning their representatives from doing wrong things. It is here in Nigeria that a political office holder is accused of corruption, and such person will not deem it fit to vacate office for him/her to face his/her charges. This is not the case in a sane society.
