The Presidency has denied having anything to do with the police invitation of Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu for alleged forgery of the 2015 Senate standing order.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, who stated this yesterday on Kakaaki, a breakfast programme on Africa Independent Television (AIT), insisted that his principal would not subvert the rules of the National Assembly.
He said: “You do not know this president. This president will not orchestrate anything. Nothing that will be unconstitutional and nothing that will amount to underhand deal.
“Straightforward, plain and decent. Maybe that was what he expected everybody to do. He didn’t think anybody was going to subvert the process. That is why the National Assembly is where it is. But no orchestration.
“This is not a president that will subvert the rules in any form and he thought everybody was going to play that way. But unfortunately, it did not happen that way and we have what we have now”.
Adesina explained that the president would take his time to build strong institutions that would endure.
