The senator representing Nasarawa West in the National Assembly, Abdullahi Adamu, on Monday urged the Senate President Bukola Saraki to confess his political sins against President Muhammadu Buhari, especially during the time Mr Buhari was sick and undergoing treatment in London.

Mr Adama made the charge in reaction to Mr Saraki’s accusation that his support for President Buhari was a fake and deliberate attempt to get Mr Buhari’s buy-in for the case he (Mr Adama) and his son had with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

However, in an interview with the Vanguard newspaper, Mr Adamu said he had no case in court in any part of the country, just as he urged the Senate President to go and verify if he had any case in any court in Nigeria.

According to Mr Adamu, the Senate president lied; and that his case with the anti-graft agency was closed on June 28, 2015.

Mr Adamu, who is also the Chairman, Senate Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development, accused Mr Saraki of plotting to succeed President Buhari in 2017 when the president was away for a medical vacation.

He alleged that the Senate President could be well described as being mischievous against the backdrop that he had plotted against President Buhari, with plans to succeed the President when he was sick, thinking that the President will not return to the country.

Mr 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.”
