By Abiodun Alade

Former member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Patrick Obahiagbon ((aka Igodomigodo) ), has described the show of solidarity by 80 senators who accompanied the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Wednesday, as ‘’Political Hallelujahness of the highest order’’.

Political Halleluyahness

Saraki is facing a 13-count criminal charge bordering on false declaration of assets preferred against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau before the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

The Chief of Staff to Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State took to his Twitter handle, @PObahiagbon, to vent his anger, noting that while the executive arm of government led by President Muhammadu Buhari has witnessed a positive change, the legislature under the leadership of Bukola Saraki appears to be a different matter.

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu led 79 other senators to the tribunal in a show of solidarity.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Senate President, failed to persuade the Code of Conduct Tribunal sitting in Abuja to grant an indefinite adjournment on the 13-count criminal charge that is pending against him.

The Justice Danladi Umar-led tribunal, while rejecting the application which Saraki made through his lawyer, Mr. Mahmud Magaji, SAN, ordered him to appear before it ‎on November 5.

Justice Umar said the tribunal was minded to adjourn full-blown hearing on the substantive case till next month, to enable it to ascertain the outcome of the appeal that Saraki lodged before the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal.
