The crisis of confidence in the Senate is far from being over. A member of the Unity Forum – a group of senators opposed to the emergence of Senate President Bukola Saraki and his deputy Ike Ekweremadu – yesterday vowed to continue the fight to “restore the integrity of the Senate”.
Senator Ajayi Boroffice (Ondo North), who spoke to reporters after picking the All Progressives Congress (APC) nomination form to contest the Ondo State Governorship primary, said they will not rest until the integrity of the Senate is restored. Boroffice said their fight against the Senate leadership was based purely on principle and not because of hatred for anybody, adding that his group would continue to “fight to ensure that the image of the Senate is redeemed”.
He said: “I am one of those people who went to court to challenge the election of the Senate’s principal officers and I maintain that we have done that on principle not because we hate anybody. We want to defend the integrity of the senate and the sanctity of the rule of law.
