Abdullahi Adamu, senator representing Nassarawa west, says a forensic audit should be carried out on national assembly spending under the leadership of Senate President Bukola Saraki.

Adamu made his position known during a press briefing in Abuja on Sunday.

According to the lawmaker, the senate president’s refusal to vacate his seat after defecting from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is “suspicious” and should be investigated.

“I call for a forensic audit of the finances of the parliament which has been thoroughly messed up under the President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki,” he said.

“We did not know what Saraki’s agenda is. As we go through this tenure of his, the more we see things being unearthed.

“For him to refuse to move or leave the chair, there must be a reason for it.

“As the chairman of the national assembly, there is so much that he is doing that we want to take a look at.

“If he is clean let him move away and accept that there should be a forensic audit of the national assembly funds under his watch. Simple. Let him move so that we will see what he is sitting over.

“We have seen his unbridled ambition. We have seen now that even though the odds are so much against him, he went to a party that is now losing ground and that is now a minority in the national assembly.”

Adamu said Saraki should forfeit his “unbridled ambition” and “willingly” vacate his position as senate president, having “lost respect” of the majority in the national assembly.
