“We are inclined to imagine that the newest risk of impeachment shouldn’t be unconnected with the present travails of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
“This attempt to turn the heat on Buhari particularly at this material time is nothing short of armtwisting, blackmail and parliamentary terrorism. Senate should remain neutral in a criminal case and allow the law to take its due course,” the group mentioned.

The Nigerian individuals should tighten their seat belts. We can’t afford to look at in silence whereas recognized oppressors search to remove our liberator.
“While MURIC is not going to play politics with the Saraki-police saga, we should arise for the reality. Neither should we be afraid to say it as it’s. Though not as graphic, we might have a similitude of the S. T. Oredein tragedy within the Bacita theft of 1971 within the days of Kam Salem because the Inspector General of Police. Is historical past repeating itself this time round as a farce or as a tragedy? Time will inform.
”We contend that participation in crime can’t be restricted to actions on the scene of crime. Neither can we extenuate or completely write off the offence of those that facilitate the empowerment of criminals to the extent that the latter is ready to use the proceeds of empowerment to commit a crime.
“Nobody in his right senses will dismiss the confessions of criminals who provide both historical and pictorial evidence of long association with high profile politicians particularly crimes in which several lives have been lost over decades,” the group added.
