A coalition of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) in the country has demanded the immediate resignation of Senate President Bukola Saraki, following his alleged link with the Offa banks robbery, non- declaration of his assets and killings of over 33 people in Kwara State by his political thugs. 

The group, under the aegis of Coalition of Civil Society for Good Governance and Democracy, while recalling that Saraki’s corruption trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) over his alleged non- declaration of assets, was still ongoing in the anti-graft court, insisting that the path to honour for the Senate President was to step aside to clear his name. 

At a press conference, yesterday, in Abuja, Convener of the group, Alhaji Adamu Kabiru, who led other groups, comprising labour and trade unions and Joint Action Committee (JAC) to the event, tasked members of the 8th Senate to do the needful by immediately impeaching Saraki as Senate President, should he fail to resign, saying such development would bring sanity and restore the lost glory to that chamber of the National Assembly in particular and Nigeria.
