POLITICS: Senate Standing Rules Forgery: Saraki And Ekweremadu Granted Conditional Bail

Reports of amendment to sections of the Senate Standing Rules have been causing wrinkles in the Nigerian political scene since June 9, 2015. The replacement of ‘open’ with the ‘secret’ voting system, among other
amendments to the rules, have set the stage for the prosecution of Senate President Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, on allegations of conspiracy and forgery. The alleged illegal alterations to the Standing Rules purportedly aided the emergence of Saraki as President of Senate and Senator Ike Ekweremadu as Deputy President.
The forgery suit against Saraki, Ekweremadu, the outgoing clerk to the National Assembly, Alhaji Salisu Maikasuwa and the deputy clerk to the National Assembly, Mr. Ben Efeturi, was held today at a Federal High Court in Abuja.
The “supposed” Senate President, Ahmad Lawan claims that Saraki and his PDP gang conspired to amend the senate Standing Rules to achieve their “selfish” political goal.
However, at the court hearing today, Justice Yusuf Haliru of the Federal High Court Abuja has granted bail to Senate President Bukola Saraki, his deputy Ike Ekweremadu, former Clerk of the National Assembly, Salisu Abubakar Maikasuwa and his deputy, Benedict Efeturi. Saraki, Ekweremadu and the two others all pleaded not guilty when the charges of forgery of the senate order was read to them. Part of their bail condition is that they must have landed property in Maitama, Asokoro, Wuse to be used as surety or be remanded in Kuje prison. The case has been adjourned to July 11th.
