Boroffice to Saraki: Resign honourably
The Senator representing Ondo North District at the Upper Chamber, Prof. Ajayi Boroffice on Saturday urged the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki to resign his position honourably or be booted out.
According to him, he should do the needful since the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has majority lawmakers in the senate.
The chairman, Senate Committee on Science and Technology lamented that the senate under Saraki had been most turbulent and crisis-ridden for the past three years.
Boroffice noted that the Senate frosty relationship between the executive and legislature should not have been if not because of Saraki’s opposition to the executive since inception of Buhari’s led Administration in the country, because of ulterior motive.
The Asiwaju of Akoko spoke with reporters in Akungba, Akoko South West local Area of Ondo State shortly after laying the foundation of model basic science laboratories in the University town.
The Senator maintained that if Saraki declines to relinquish his position honourably, APC Senators will do the needful.
He however assured that the defection of Saraki and others would not have any impact on Buhari’s victory in 2019 general elections.
The lawmaker explained that they left APC because they were not comfortable with anti-graft crusade of unimaginable corruption, realising that most of them would soon be exposed to Nigerians that they are corrupt elements.
He extolled President Muhammadu Buhari for his courage to tackle the menace in spite of loud criticisms.
