Victory for Saraki: Buhari Tenders Apology To Senate President

On Friday, July 1, President Muhammadu Buhari openly apologized to Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s led Senate, over the uncomplimentary attitude and conduct of the representative of the Attorney General of the Federation, Mr. Okoi Obono-Obla, when he appeared before its Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Matters, on Thursday, June 30.


President Buhari made the apology through his Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly, Senator Ita Enang. Senator Enang made the apology in an interview with Senate correspondents, on Friday.

Enang, also explained that he never teamed up with other Aides of President Buhari, to testify in the prosecution of presiding officers of the Senate.

Making the clarification, he described as false publications and insinuations that Presidential Aides have been lined up against Senate presiding officers, in the prosecution of the Senate Standing Rules Forgery.

“It was false publications and insinuations that Presidential Aides have been lined up against the presiding officers of the Senate and others in the prosecution relating to the Standing Rules of the Senate, 2015, citing me as one of those lined up,” he refuted.

Explaining how he got involved, Enang said: “a Deputy Inspector General of Police, Dan Azumi Doma, had earlier received a petition that some distinguished Senators of the 8th Senate had forged the 2015 Standing Rules and consequent upon that, the DIG wrote the Clerk to the National Assembly in his letter, dated July 1, 2015, requesting for audience with me and others which was slated for July 6, 2015.

“The DIG, having interrogated me, said, he suspected that as the Committee Chairman, Senate Business and Rules of the 7th Senate, I was suspected to have been the brain behind the forgery, which I denied in a written statement”.
