I won't Resign - Bukola Saraki

...
It seems the embattled Senate President of Nigeria, Bukola Saraki is not backing out time soon amidst corruption scandals. On Friday, Saraki said he would not comply to growing calls from Nigerians that he should step down.
Mr. Saraki also said that those calling for his resignation were people supported by his detractors who had always opposed his leadership and trying to circumvent the country's judicial system since he became Senate President last June.

Mr. Saraki was responding to a story published by PREMIUM TIMES earlier today, in which the Transition Monitoring Group lend its voice to a growing call for the Senate President's ouster.
In a text message sent to our reporter by his Special Adviser on Media, Yusuph Olaniyonu, Mr. Saraki said he was not contemplating resignation.
...
Since Mr. Saraki was arraigned by the Code of Conduct Tribunal and the PREMIUM TIMES expose about his secret offshore assets in tax havens, the calls for him to step down have continued to mount. On Thursday, several activists, and other Nigerians openly called on the Senate President to resign. They were joined today by the TMG.
PREMIUM TIMES had reported on Monday that Mr. Saraki failed to disclose four assets found to be in his wife's name offshore, in violation of Nigeria's code of conduct law.
That revelation came to light following the leak of a trove of internal data from the Panama-based offshore-provider, Mossack Fonseca, obtained by the German newspaper, Süddeutsche Zeitung, and shared by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) with PREMIUM TIMES and over 100 other media partners in 82 countries.
In his response to that publication, Mr. Saraki said the controversial assets belonged to the estate of his wife's wealthy and famous family, and that the law did not mandate him to declare such a category of assets.
But PREMIUM TIMES later found that the property neither belongs to Toyin, his wife, nor to her family's estate. They are clearly Mr. Saraki's.
According to the new documents retrieved by PREMIUM TIMES from the massive Mossack Fonseca database, the assets in Toyin's name are actually held in trust for Mr. Saraki, Nigeria's third most powerful official.

Nigeria's Senate President, Bukola Saraki is currently fighting the political battle of his life. However, some of his political associates believe that the former Governor of Kwara State is being witch hunt because of his rising political career.

Senate President: Bukola Saraki
...
TV: The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki is being prosecuted for not declaring his assets correctly, this has led to the call for his resignation by some Senators, yet those of you close to him keep saying that he should not resign. Are you fair to the masses of your country by telling him not to resign? Adekanye Olabode: I want to say without any fear of contradiction that the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has the backing of Nigerian masses who are very much aware that what is playing out is mere politics.
...
Mr. Olabode says Dr Saraki should not resign.
...
Adekanye Olabode: We all know that some politicians wanted their candidate to emerge as the Senate President, but Saraki became the President of the Senate because of his wide acceptability across the country.
...
Dr. Bukola Saraki is a bridge builder, little wonder even Senators who are in the opposition party voted for him to become the Senate President. What is Saraki's sin in this; he has no power to proclaim himself the Senate President. He was voted for, so why are they still after his seat. As I said earlier, they are most unfair to the man. However, we are optimistic that the Senate President will laugh last. The fact is that some sectional leaders see him as a threat to their future political calculations, so they think the best thing is to bring him down. But let them know that Saraki is not a man that could be brought down just like that. He is a national leader with followership across the country. TV: Don't you think your party is heading towards the rocks with the issue of Saraki?
...
What we need in Nigeria now is to provide service for the people and that is what Senator Saraki has been doing as the President of the Senate, I wonder what they want to gain in all these. It is not about the interest of the country but some persons who see Saraki as a threat to their political calculations. Unfortunately, those causing this problem are mere sectional leaders or if you like, call them regional leaders. Saraki is however not like them because he remains a national leader.
...
We are all working together as one under the leadership of Dr. Bukola Saraki. He is our leader and he will continue to be our leader.

Nigeria's Code of Conduct ...

Nigeria's Code of Conduct Bureau has filed charges against Nigeria's Senate President, Bukola Saraki, for alleged failure to fully declare his assets, SaharaReporters has just learnt

by SAHARAREPORTERS, NEW YORK Sep 15, 2015
Nigeria's Code of Conduct Bureau has filed charges against Nigeria's Senate President, Bukola Saraki, for alleged failure to fully declare his assets, SaharaReporters has just learnt Nigeria's Senate President, Bukola Saraki
The tribunal's 13-count charge exclusively obtained by SaharaReporters accuses Mr. Saraki, among other crimes, of improperly using state funds to purchase private assets during his tenure as the governor of Kwara State while he was senator of the federal republic of Nigeria.
The Senate President was also accused of declaring as part of his assets a property that had not been sold to him, a maneuver that is known as "anticipatory looting" in Nigeria's political lexicon.
The Code of Conduct Tribunal has never convicted any Nigerian official for false declaration of assets.
Mr. Saraki's wife, Toyin Saraki, is being investigated for money laundering by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), but charges are yet to be filed against her by the agency.
SaharaReporters has done a series of exposes on Mr. Saraki's history of money laundering and graft beginning from his role in the systematic looting of assets belonging to Societe Generale Bank in which his family had significant shares. The bank ultimately failed.
Mr. Saraki has been embattled ever since his emergence as the Senate Presidency, with many anti-corruption activists and groups viewing him as an impediment to any efforts to combat corruption in Nigeria.
