Traditional rulers in Kwara state have condemned the trial of Bukola Saraki, the Senate president before the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
According to the monarchs, led by Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu- Gambari, their chairman and Emir of Ilorin, Saraki’s trial was not the change mantra of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Nigerians bargained for.
Speaking yesterday on behalf of the traditional leaders, Sulu-Gambari said was not wise to persecute perceived political enemy.
He said: “We come here to join our son (Bukola Saraki) with whom we are much pleased. We are ready to support him. We are here to see him on the various constitutional challenges, we would not call it problem, may God not make it a problem for us.
“It doesn’t take long for a 10- year old child to realize that our dear son, our precious son is being persecuted. The politics of persecution is not the right change for Nigeria. We want changes, we want it to be clean. He who seeks equity must come with clean hands. If you want equity, you yourself must do equity.”
Sulu- Gambari therefore called on Nigerians to beware of bad elements who are bent on dismantling the country on account of political vendetta.
