Senate mace theft ‘a very primitive adventure’ – Saraki


The Senate President, Bukola Saraki has again spoken on the invasion of the National Assembly on Wednesday by thugs who took away the mace .

Saraki described the act as primitive and disgraceful.

Speaking yesterday at the 4th Anniversary Lecture of an online publication, The Nitche, held at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs (NIIA), Victoria Island, Lagos, he said the action of the invaders was against good reasoning.

Saraki, who was represented at the event by Senator Ben Bruce, said: “What happened was a disgrace. It made no sense if you think about it, and it was a very primitive adventure.

“If they were looking for a routine change, it was better they followed due process.”

Citing an example, he said, “If you were to impeach the President, for instance, you go through the impeachment process and involve the House.

“You will have to get a simple majority or three quarters of the members to get him out. And where you are unable to do that, you simply walk away.”
