The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has said he and his colleagues will not be distracted by the attack on the legislature.
Saraki said they would continue to protect Nigeria’s democracy and the rights of the citizens throughout the remaining period of the Eighth National Assembly.
Speaking during a solidarity visit by chairmen of 45 political parties following the siege on the National Assembly on Tuesday yesterday in Abuja, he said an attack on the legislature was an attack on Nigeria’s democracy.
Earlier, leader of the delegation, Perry Okpara, who read the chairmen’s position, said with the siege, Nigeria was gradually turning into a failed stateý, saying this was the right time to rise and defend the country’s democracy.
