Bukola Saraki

Saraki in the eye of the storm

It is no news that the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has been having one issue or the other to contend with. Charges of financial impropriety were levied against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission after he left office as governor of Kwara State.

Not too long ago, the Code of Conduct Bureau indicted him for lapses in the declaration of his assets. Also, he has been linked with alleged sponsorship of acts of brigandage and political thuggery in Kwara State by the main actors in the sad Offa bank robbery incident.

Much as we do know that the law requires facts and not suppositions, and that an accused person is presumed innocent until he is guilty,it is more honourable not to be indicted than to be indicted and proved innocent..
