The former Nigerian Minister of state for Education, Kenneth Gbagi, yesterday advised senate president, Sen. Bukola Saraki to resign over the charges raised against him at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
Gbagi, who spoke with newsmen in Abuja said Saraki’s continuous stay as senate president will hurt the integrity of upper chamber, stressing that the international community will not believe in bills passed by Senate under the leadership of Saraki.
The former minister hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for his anti-corruption war and urged him not to spare any corrupt government official.
He said “we have a problem in Nigeria where we don’t have people of honor, dignity and integrity. The mere fact that the senate president has lied by doing anticipatory declaration means he is a thief and he has no business being a senate president living with tax payers money. First Nigerians will not have faith in anything that comes out of his senate that is shared or presented by that kind of person.
“The entire international community will not believe in the passage of any Bill under his leadership. So it is in the interest of his own self just with the name of the father left to get lost, having lied on oath. So if you ask me that is the end of him. He is gone. And like several other government where you think you get in and it will be business as usual, it is not true. He should find another profession. Politically he is gone.”
Gbagi added that all the senators who are rallying in defense of the embattled senate president would also be exposed soon, noting that they cannot hold the government to ransom.
He noted that the country has had too many hold backs because corrupt persons have over the years hijacked the reins of power.
