Kogi West senatorial representative, Senator Dino Melaye has stated that the ongoing trials involving the Senate President, Bukola Saraki was because he is the Senate President.

Saraki is standing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, for false assets declaration and at the same time facing another trial alongside his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu at the Federal High Court Abuja over forgery of senate rule in 2015.

Speaking to Osasu Igbinedion on The Osasu Show, the outspoken senator said Saraki is being persecuted and not prosecuted.

Melaye said, “What the senate president is going through in the CCT from my own myopic point of view, is not prosecution but persecution.

“We all know that he’s suffering because he had ambition to become the senate president and a man should not be punished for having ambition.

“Ambition is something every individual who wants to make progress in life should have. In fact, our president is a very ambitious person, that’s why he contested for the presidency of this country, four different times.

“So it’s not a crime to be ambitious and Bukola Saraki should not be punished for been ambitious. So the CCT trial, for as far as I’m concerned is a persecution and the case is already falling like pack of cards under cross examination and I want to believe it is because of the failure of the CCT ongoing trial that an orchestration was made for the forgery case in the High court.”
