The federal government has slammed Senate President Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu with a two-count charge of criminal conspiracy and forgery.

This followed a petition written to the police in 2015 by a member of the Senate, Suleiman Hunkuyi, on behalf of the senate Unity Forum, alleging that the Senate Standing Rule 2015 which was used in the election of Saraki and Ekweremadu as Senate President and deputy respectively, was forged.

The suit is coming more than a year after the police commenced investigations into the matter.

Also charged alongside the two principal officers are the immediate past Clerk of the National Assembly, Salisu Maikasuwa, and his deputy, Benedict Efeturi.

The case has been assigned to Justice Yusuf Haliru of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

This is being perceived in some quarters as another dimension in the seeming crisis between the presidency and the legislature, which could be traced to the manner with which the election of principal officers in the National Assembly was conducted.

It would be recalled that the Senate President is still undergoing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, for alleged false declaration of assets and receiving salary even after his tenure as the governor of Kwara State had elapsed.

    Centre for Investigative Reporting is kinda boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and
    note how they create post headlines to get people to open the
