Bukola Saraki, Senate President

Some senators-elect said that Senate President Bukola Saraki will be investigated over his tenure when they are inaugurated in June.

The senators, who won a return to the upper legislative chamber in last week’s presidential and National Assembly elections, said the Senate would be interested in knowing how Saraki managed its resources and handled national budgets over the four years he held sway as its President.

Saraki became President for the 8th Senate in 2015 through a controversial circumstance that created a rift between the Federal Government and the All Progressives Congress APC dominated Red Chamber of the Assembly.

The Senate President subsequently left the ruling APC over the irreconcilable differences and rejoined the People’s Democratic Party PDP. He, however, lost his re-election bid, as well as the opportunity to return to the Senate when he was defeated in the contest for the Kwara Central senatorial district last week .
