Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has said that he chose not to honour invitation by Police because issues and questions raised by the gesture were already answered.
Dr. Saraki, made this statement today through his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, pointing out that after answering all the questions raised by the police in his letter, he did not believe there was any further need for him to go to the police personally.
Recall that Saraki had earlier described the Police invitation as a plot designed by the Presidency and the Federal Government to force him and his associates to remain in the ruling All Progressives Congress.
According to Saraki, the invitation by the Police was politically motivated in connection to keeping him and associates in the APC till 2019 general elections.
The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, had on Monday invited Saraki to appear before the Police Special Anti-Robbery Unit at Guzape to answer questions over his alleged involvement in the Offa robbery incident.
Saraki had said: “This plot aimed at compelling me and my associates to stay in a party where members are criminalised without just cause, where injustice is perpetrated at the highest level and where there is no respect for constitutionalism is an exercise in futility and it will fail.”
