The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the sudden withdrawal of the forgery case against Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu was not worth celebrating.
In a statement issued by the spokesperson for the PDP, Dayo Adeyeye on Sunday, the party asked why the Federal Government suddenly realized the case was orchestrated.
Adeyeye said the APC-led government was on a vendetta mission, rather than govern.
He said, “We are amused by this sudden realisation of the Federal Government that the so-called forgery case was a shadow chase from the beginning. It was complete nothingness!
“More so, the claim through the lead counsel, Aliyu Umar (SAN), that the withdrawal was on the grounds of respect for the rule of law and hierarchy of the judiciary, demonstrates more of comedy on the side of the Federal Government that has a penchant for legal disobedience and abuse of court processes.”
Adeyeye continued, “The principle of separation of powers as propagated in every democratic setting is to allow for checks and balances among the different arms of government in order to prevent excessive or cohesive use of power by any of the organs of government.
“In this context, it was clear to us and other well-meaning Nigerians from the outset that this case of forgery instituted against the presiding officers of the National Assembly was just another bad politics of the APC because the Federal Government under the Penal Code Law has no business with the Standing Rules of the National Assembly as alleged.”
