Protesters Besiege NASS Over Marafa Probe, Tell Saraki to Resign

PROTEST-750x400There seem to be a serious inferno on the roof of upper house as some group of people called Society Coalition stormed the National Assembly calling for the resignation of Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
The protest was spurred by the probing of Senator Kabir Marafa by the ethics committee of the senate that commenced on Monday over an interview he granted a national daily. The senate viewed the interview as damaging to the reputation of the upper house
The pro-Marafa protesters agitate that the senate president should resign in order to face his trial by the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT.
The embattled senator from Zamfara snubbed the committee only for his supporters to turn the heat on Saraki today
Protesters who besieged NASS were seen carrying placards with different inscriptions; some read: “‎Suspend Saraki not Marafa, “stop suspending members leave the Senate and face CCT”, “Democracy survives inclusive not in suspending people of different opinion”, “NASS centre of Democracy not Fascist”
Marafa, in the interview he granted, revealed that all the drama that trailed the 2016 budget after it was presented, such as missing and two versions were allegedly masterminded by Saraki to blackmail Mr. President.
