No Going Back On Saraki’s Recall – Constituents
An Ilorin based group, “Kwara Must Change” has said it is ready for the recall exercise of Senate President Bukola Saraki.
The group, in a press statement signed by Abdulrazaq Hamzat mentioned that the Senate President has failed to offer adequate representation hence the decision to initiate the constitutional process of recall.
The group, in the press statement noted that it had received information alleging that some of the Legislative Aides of the Senate President have dolled huge sum of money to launch campaign of calumny against its leadership but not deterred at such moves.
The part statement reads:
“Let it be clear that the process of recall has been initiated. It is a constitutional process that can not be stopped by any threat. It will take place as announced and shall succeed insha Allah.
“If the senate president is as popular as he thinks, there is nothing to worry about, because we cannot recall the Senate president without the people. This is simply a test of popularity.
“We maintain that nobody can threaten us, because we are determined to carry on with this process and get it to a logical conclusion. As law abiding citizens of Nigeria and employer of the Senate President, the
people reserve the right to hire and fire him at any time we consider his services no longer useful. This is the power we intend to exercise without fear or favor.
“We therefore call on the Senate President to caution his overzealous aides and warn them to desist from unwarranted threat, because should anything happen to any of our members; we would hold him directly responsible.
“We also call on the Department of State Security (DSS) and the Nigerian Police to warn all those making threats against other citizens over issue of law and constitutionality. No citizen should be threatened for exercising their rights, as contained in the Nigerian constitution.
“Finally, we reiterate that the signing of the recall register shall hold as announced on August 1st, 2017 and we urge all electorates in Kwara Central to troop out en-mass to sign the register, so as to effect the recall.”
