The Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Shehu Sani, has advised the Police to suspend its ongoing investigation into the alleged forgery of Senate standing rules used for the election of its presiding officers on June 9 and allow members of the upper chamber to handle the allegation internally.
This advise comes ahead of the resumption of the two chambers of the National Assembly on Tuesday, July 28.
Senator Sani also allayed fears of further crisis in the National Assembly should the leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) go ahead to remove the elected principal officers of the Senate and replace them with their choice candidates.
Speaking with newsmen in Kaduna, Senator Sani noted that since the National Assembly is capable of handling its matters internally, the Police should hands off its investigation on the forgery case to pave way for the Senate to resolve the matter internally.
He also advised the APC national leadership to allow the new elected principal officers of the Senate to continue in office in order to allow the ongoing crisis to settle.
A former governor of Kaduna State, Balarabe Musa, has, however, condemned the action of the APC National Assembly principal officers for undermining the directive and supremacy of the party, on which platform they were all elected.
