Former Presidential spokesperson to ex-president Jonathan, Doyin Okupe took to his Facebook page to express his fears over the current travails of the senate president Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal. Okupe in his post said it portends danger for Nigeria. What he wrote below..

    To ordinary watchers of Nigerian politics, the on going ordeal of the Senate President, Dr saraki may be an interesting soap opera.But to more discerning minds it is nothing short of a tragic comedy. Over the years Nigerian politicians fail over and over again to convince anybody that they actually learnt anything from our checkered political history. This is why we have had many Republics in our national history.
    Wiston Churchill said " failure to act when action would have been simple and effective, lack of good reasoning, and confusion of counsel, all these lead to endless repetition of history." I am personally not a supporter of Dr Saraki and for good reason. He spearheaded the demolition of the pdp and the eventual catastrophic electoral misfortune of the Goodluck Jonathan 's Presidency. Neither am I a detractor of the Senate President. However as a veteran politician I accept that all is fair in love and in war and as they say theend justifies the means. But what is currently going on is ominous and dangerous and will require Wisdom and extreme tact from all the dramatis personnel.

    I did in the past predict that the APC will break up, but that was before the APC formed the government. Now that they are in government, it is not in my interest or that of any reasonable or patriotic Nigerian to wish that they break up. A break up of the APC now has the capacity to undermine the current political process and the entire political dispensation we are passing through to the detriment of the country and the innocent masses. As it is now, while the law must be allowed to take its course, men with less passion, and more sense on ALL sides must rise to the occasion to manage this delicate matter in the overall interest of our Nation, our democracy and our people. Remembering always that an ill wind does not blow anyone any good.

Dear Mr Politician, enough is enough, but people like you just don't get it. If  APC must break up for not allowing a criminal to represent the Nigerian democracy, so be it. Would you actually prefer a criminal in government or someone with a passion to move Nigeria forward and not their personal bank account. Saraki like all former politicians stole the people's money and no matter the likes of you, justice must be served and swift to compensate for every pain an average Nigerian goes through just to survive on a daily basis.

@Sandra. I am ashamed of people like you. I have this question for you. Do you really believe that GEJ and his cohorts did not steal Nigeria's money? If your answer is yes, then does that make them criminals or not? It does not matter if it is revenge or witch hinting...whatever you want to call it. If the hunted are not at ease with the present dispensation, then let them also dig up the dirt on their accusers. After all, this is democracy. The criminals belong behind bars.

Of all people talking it's you! I can't remember that remark you made concerning the APC that if they win the elections you were going to go on exile or something like that. Since you couldn't fulfill your words or apologize to Nigerians you are no better than Saraki himself. So shut up and let us concentrate on building a better Nigeria for a better tomorrow.
