Ohaneze Youth forum, an Igbo socio-cultural
group, have released a statement kicking against
the planned arraignment of Senate President,
Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu,
over the alleged forgery of the senate order
during the senate’s election in June last year.
In the statement released today, the group said
‘their son’ Ekweremadu, is occupying the highest
political office in the South East and should not
be unduly humiliated and embarrassed. Full text
of their statement after the cut…
“The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council is
alarmed by the sudden resurfacing of the
arraignment of the Senate President
Bukola Saraki and the Deputy Senate
President Ike Ekweremadu over the
purported forgery of the Senate 8th
session rules. In as much as we do not
condone any act of illegality, from any
quarters, we make bold to state that the
present attempt to arraign Senator Saraki
and Ekweremadu is ill -motivated and
politically induced. The issue at stake has
been investigated by the Senate and the
duo found guiltless in the past. The
Senate is the highest law making body in
the country and the principle of
separation of power confer on them the
privilege to internally investigate and
even discipline any of their erring
members. Also the principle of Separation
of powers presupposes that the three
arms of government viz, Executive,
legislature and the Judiciary have a
reasonable level of independence, though
working in synergy. If the Senate has not
found the duo guilty, is it the Judiciary or
the Executive that should do so. We
therefore advise the AGF representing the
judiciary and the Executive arm to allow
and respect the principle of separation of
powers. In particular our son Senator Ike
Ekweremadu is occupying the highest
political office in the South East and
should not be unduly humiliated and
embarrassed by these recurring antics.
We shall no longer take this lightly. We
shall mobilize other like groups all over
the country to resist the tyranny of
democracy in our country” the statement
