I Will Testify in Saraki's Forgery Case as a Senator and Not as Buhari's Aide - Ojudu

Senator Babafemi Ojudu has stated that he'll witness in the forgery case against Bukola Saraki and Ike Ekweremadu has a senator and not as the Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, the position he now occupies.

“My statement and other witnesses’ statement were taken months before my appointment. As a member of the Unity Forum, I am one of those who worked for Senator Ahmed Lawan as the preferred candidate for the Senate Presidency in the June 9, 2015 election.

“There are three groups of senators, they are: the Unity Forum, Like Minds and the Non-Aligned. The Unity Forum comprises both serving and non-serving senators. I am an active member, being a senator in the 7th Senate from 2011 to 2015.”

Stressing that he was at the Senate for four years, Ojudu said that at no time were the rules amended.

“So tampering with the rules by the current Senate was seen as a misnomer by us and that was why we petitioned the police.”

“The statement we did to the police on the matter predated my appointment and that of Senator Ita Enang. It will therefore be preposterous for anyone to classify me as representing the Presidency on the matter.”
