Sagay: Saraki should resign because of morality sake, but Adeosun can not
Prof Itse Sagay(SAN), the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption(PACAC) Chairman has joined other people like Oshiomole, APC Senators et al, who are calling on Senate President Bukola Saraki to vacate his seat honorably for the sake of morality.
The ace Prof of Law said this on Thursday when he was being interviewed by newsmen. The senior advocate said having a member of the minority party as the President of the Senate was an aberration anywhere in the world. He, therefore, asked Saraki to give up the seat and then re-contest the position next year if he wins on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party.
The PACAC chairman said, “Saraki’s refusal to step down is a moral issue. The constitution does not specify that the Senate President must be a member of the majority party. All it states is that the majority of those sitting at the Senate will elect a Senate President." He added, “But by convention, there is no party that is in the majority that will allow a member of the minority party to lead. Now that he has crossed over to the PDP, he is morally bound to step aside and then re-contest as a PDP candidate. I am advising him to step down. Morally, he has no right to be there and if he is a man of honour and integrity, who has self-respect, he should not remain in office.”
However, when ask about the Minister of Finance NYSC exemption certificate allegation, the Professor of Law goofed totally by saying "no government can sack a competent person like Adeosun because of irrelevant issue like NYSC ...". And this has been generating condemnation from people across the country that a professor in criminal law can make such statement.
