Youth group cau­tions Falana over com­ment on Saraki

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Romoke W. Ah­mad, Ilorin

Youths un­der the aegis of Kwara Agenda have cau­tioned La­gos lawyer Femi Falana against un­justly at­tack­ing the per­son of the Se­nate Pres­i­dent Bukola Saraki.

The youths in a state­ment signed by their co­or­di­na­tor, Mal­lam Yusuf Olatunji, said Falana had been very loud about the is­sue of pay­ment of pen­sion to for­mer gov­er­nors, which Saraki was en­ti­tled to by law but which he had on his own vo­li­tion re­jected.

The group, which said Falana could not re­gard him­self as per­fect, stated, “It is easy for peo­ple like Falana to grand­stand by is­su­ing press state­ments ac­cus­ing oth­ers and mak­ing de­mands on oth­ers. How­ever, our po­si­tion is that he who goes to eq­uity must go with clean hands.”
