The Hon. Bashir Bolarinwa-led faction of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kwara state has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for allowing rule of law to thrive in Nigeria.
The group said this in a reaction to the judgment of the Supreme Court delivered in favour of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki on Friday, in the alleged false asset declaration trial.
The Bolarinwa-led Kwara APC said Saraki’s acquittal is a testament of the Buhari administration’s openness and commitment to the independence of every arm of government, while vigorously fighting corruption.
According to a statement signed by the party chairman, the trial of the Senate President, however, indicates that, no one, no matter how highly placed in the society, should be considered or placed above the law of the land.
Bolarinwa noted that the successful prosecution of the Senate President’s trial, has now proved that the Federal Government under President Buhari will always allow every citizen to explore every window open for defense through the law to defend him or herself in the fight against fraud.
He therefore urged every arm of the government and citizens to support the federal government in the fight by ensuring accountability and probity in their corridors too.
