Saraki is God’s anointed - APC chief­tain

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, La­gos

A chief­tain of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) in Kwara State, Al­haji Su­ly­man Kay­ode Yusuf, has con­demned the call for the res­ig­na­tion of the Se­nate Pres­i­dent, Bukola Saraki.

He said the con­spir­acy in some quar­ters to get Saraki out of of­fice would col­lapse like a pack of cards.

Speak­ing with our cor­re­spon­dent, Yusuf said that God, who in­stalled Saraki, will pro­tect him, stress­ing that those who could not stop his as­cen­dancy into the of­fice of the Se­nate Pres­i­dent can­not suc­ceed in re­mov­ing him.

Saraki is cur­rently fac­ing a 13-count charge of al­leged false as­sets dec­la­ra­tion be­fore the Code of Con­duct Tri­bunal (CCT).

He had re­ceived a vote of con­fi­dence from over 80 sen­a­tors on Tues­day, soon af­ter they re­turned from their re­cess.
