Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has weighed in on the recent dismissal of the forgery case instituted against Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and his deputy, Senator Ike Ekweremadu. In a statement by the Tinubu Media Office, Asiwaju noted that “With these forgery charges found not to apply, it is good that they be dismissed so that the national assembly may focus on this important work ahead. While those involved may understandably feel a sense of relief or vindication, this is no time for them to celebrate or to believe all is well with the nation simply because all has turned out well for them on this matter.
“All is not well. Throughout the nation, the people stagger and groan under the weight of economic hardship. This government and our party must hear and respond to their plea. We must lead the way. The statement maintained that the “withdrawal of the forgery case against the Senate President and other members of the National Assembly is a welcome development at this crucial time. A mind and heart unburdened by the specter of possible legal liability is also free to devote itself to the pressing matters of state. Consequently, this action presents a unique window of opportunity for the national assembly to reset its bearings and to focus on the real issues at hand”.
