And there was a standing Ovation for Saraki ….

Yes! That is what I call it. A standing ovation at the National Assembly which began its session today after six weeks of recess. A vote of confidence was passed today by the Senate on SP Dr. Bukola Saraki and DSP Ike Ekweremadu and all other principal members of the National Assembly. Dr Saraki gave his welcome speech and the business at the house began as usual.

But lets go back to the basics here, will the vote of confidence passed by the Senate prevent or stop the Code of Conduct Tribunal from continuing with its case against the Senate President? I doubt that! The 13 count charge is still very much alive and come 21, 22 and 23 of October 2015 the headlines shall continue with this piece of news.

I admire the solidarity and support that has been shown the Senate President so far by his fellow Senators and different groups and movements but all of this in my opinion cannot save the embattled Senate President except if the Code of Conduct Tribunal chooses to squash the 13 count charge against him.

Will that ever happen? This is Nigeria where impossibility hardly ever exists and even if the possibility of squashing the charges is one in a billion but it is worth mentioning.

The vote of confidence cannot wish away the 13 count charge or the perception of most elite Nigerians that most of the Politicians at the hem of affairs have one or two skeletons in their cupboard. The Elite Nigerians are of the view that justice must be done.

Back to our imagined conspiracy theory, if APC is witch hunting SP Saraki, then it means the question to be asked is “To what end?” Because assuming Dr. Saraki is removed as the Senate President, PDP will take over as the Senate President in the person of Ike Ekweremadu. So to what end will that be for APC?

Well, we shall all continue to watch as the drama unfolds… As the days go by and hours pass by.
