Senator Abdullahi Adamu on Monday alleged that the Senate President, Bukola Saraki plotted to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari when he was sick and undergoing treatment in London in 2017.
Mr. Adamu, representing Nasarawa West in the Senate, said this in an interview with the Vanguard, while reacting to statements by the Senate President that his sudden support for Buhari was the result of the case he and his son had with EFCC; adding that the Keffi-born lawmaker was a “mischievous and compulsive liar.”
However, Seantor Adamu, who is the Chairman, Senate Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development, accused Saraki of lying.
According to the former Nasarawa governor, his ase with the anti-graft agency was closed on June 28, 2015.
“I have no case in court in any part of the country, he stated, asking the Senate President to go and verify if he had any case in any court in Nigeria.
Mr. Adamu added that Saraki could be well described as being mischievous becuase he had plotted against Buhari, with plans to succeed the President when he was sick, thinking that the ex-general will not return to the country.
Senator Adamu said, “My case with the EFCC was between 2010- 2015 and it was terminated June 28, 2015. My counsel is Ibrahim Abdullahi, SAN, he is based in Abuja, anyone can go and verify. I have no case anywhere in Nigeria, Saraki is the one that is telling lies, he is the mischievous and compulsive liar.
“Saraki is just doing himself, he started the problem for himself. He started plotting to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari when he was sick. He thought that the President will not come back, unfortunately for him and fortunately for all of us, the President came back.”
