Saraki: The legislature and judiciary need immunity, not just the president and governors

Saraki: The legislature and judiciary need immunity, not just the president and governors

Senate president Bukola Saraki has lamented on the lack of immunity covering him even as high as he stacks as the 3rd citizen of the country.

His words while speaking on Wednesday:

“On the issue of immunity, what they discussed at the retreat is that the senators said it is either you give immunity to all three arms of government or immunity to none.  That is, there are three arms of government; the executive, legislative and the judiciary.

“One cannot be enjoying immunity, while the others can’t benefit from same.   The immunity is not for the Senate president alone, it will also be given to the Chief Justice of Nigeria who is the head of the judiciary arm of government.

“So, the senators said it is either you give all the heads of the three arms or you remove it from the executive arm so that nobody will have it.”
