Na wa o. So this is how we roll? A copy of the text message sent by Senate President Bukola Saraki to other Senators in order to mobilize them to accompany him to his CCT trial today was obtained by Sahara reporters.
It is no news that Sen. Saraki and the leadership of the Senate have consistently shut down the Senate to enable senators storm the venue of the CCT tribunal in a show of solidarity with over 60 senators showing up in previous trials. Some civil rights activists have accused Mr. Saraki of using Nigerian taxpayers’ money to funds the jamboree.
Yesterday, Mr. Saraki adjourned the sitting of the Senate until November 10, shortly after releasing the list of newly constituted committees of the Senate. Here’s a copy of the text message to senators, signed by one “Arthur,” self-identified as “Director of Protocol to Saraki.”
