The Trade Union Congress, TUC, Enugu State chapter has insisted that Senate President, Bukola Saraki should resign.

The Office of the Attorney General of the Federation is prosecuting Saraki for alleged false declaration of assets at the Code of Conduct Bureau.

Some organisations, including labour unions, had already called for Saraki?s resignation from office.


Chairman of the TUC in Enugu State, Chukwuma Igbokwe, while speaking with newsmen in Enugu maintained that Saraki should step aside, pending the conclusion of his trial at the CCT.

Igbokwe said, ?Any public officer that is found to be corrupt should vacate the position, or step aside to allow the judicial process take its course. If he continues to occupy the position, he can subvert the course of justice.

?Now that he (Saraki) has taken his plea, he should step aside, pending when he is found guilty, or acquitted.?

The labour leader added that the rule of law must be allowed to prevail in Saraki?s trial.


Igbokwe said, ?Nobody is above the law ? he should vacate the office for now and wait for the rule of law to take its course.

?In the current administration?s anti-corruption campaign, nobody should be spared. There should be no sacred cows and those in sensitive positions should step aside if they have been accused of corruption and taken to court.?
