Saraki vs IGP: No Appointment For Senate Delegation To Buhari
The Presidency is yet to fix a date for the Senate delegation to meet President Muhammadu Buhari over the faceoff between Senate President Bukola Saraki and the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.
The Senate had last Wednesday raised a 10-man delegation to meet President Buhari over allegation by Saraki that the IGP was plotting to frame him.
Saraki had during plenary accused the police boss of plotting to implicate him in a criminal case involving cultists in Kwara State.
Saraki said: “In my own view, this plot is an act of desperation, blackmail, intimidation, abuse of office and crude tactics aimed at turning our country into a police state where top officials cannot be made to obey the law ,follow due process and subject themselves to constituted authorities.”
Sequel to the alarm, a 10-man delegation was raised to meet the President. Saraki is to lead the delegation.
Other members of the delegation are: Ahmad Lawan, Godswill Akpabio, Olusola Adeyeye, Danjuma Goje, Abduullahi Adamu, Sam Egwu, Aliyu Wammako, Fatima Raji- Rasaki and Oluermi Tinubu.
It was gathered that the delegation, which was mandated to report back on Wednesday, has not made an appointment with the President.
It was learnt that the Senate had written the Presidency for the meeting with the President but it has not gotten any feedback on when the meeting will hold.
