Nigerians react to Saraki, Ekweremadu’s arraignment

The forgery case against Dr Bukola Saraki and Ike Ekweremadu has continued to generate reactions from some Nigerians who are suggesting the duo should resign. The Senate president and his deputy are facing a lawsuit challenging their election as the duly elected president and deputy president of the Senate. The forgery case against Saraki and Ekweremadu is a two count charge bordering on forgery of public documents. The case brought before an Abuja High Court was earlier stalled as court officials confirmed that the two presiding officers of  the Senate had not been properly served with the charges.

However the duo on Monday, June 27 appeared at the court where they were granted bail. Saraki alongside his deputy and the former clerk had earlier pleaded not guilty to the two count charge and the case has been adjourned to July 11. But there have been comments from many Nigerians suggesting the allegations against Saraki and his deputy creates a moral burden for them to resign.
