Former Senate President and elder statesman, Senator Ameh Ebute has called on Bukola Saraki, President of the 8th Senate to immediately resign in order to save the image of the entity called Nigeria.
Ebute, who was President of the Nigerian Senate during the end of the third republic, in a thought-provoking letter addressed to Saraki and obtained by DAILY POST on Friday, hinged his reason on the fact that Saraki had succeed in turning the Red Chamber into a combat theatre by protecting the abominable and despising truth.
The Benue-born political leader lamented that the Saraki-led Senate also imported what he termed despicable autocracy and despotism into parliamentary engagements, hence, the needless brawls between the Senate and the executive arm of the government.
He also cited the recent suspension of Senators Ali Adume and Omo-Agege as some of the few examples of Saraki’s aberrational leadership of the Senate and the National Assembly.
Ebute declared, “This is the extent of your moral deficit, which has disqualified you from belonging or even leading an assemblage of honourable men and women.”
He advised the Kwara-born lawmaker to kindly eat the humble pie and take the exit door, having, “consistently failed to pass the integrity and morality tests to continue to preside over Nigeria’s parliament.”
