A former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has explained that the actions taken by his leadership regarding recommendations from the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)-led regime, were taken in public interest.
Saraki, who presided over the 8th Senate, stated this in a series of tweets on his verified twitter handle @bukolasaraki, on Wednesday.
In one tweet, he wrote, “When we didn’t confirm certain appointees, it was because we did our due diligence.
“When we invited the Inspector General of Police and the security chiefs, it was because we wanted to find solutions to the issues of insecurity at the time.
“It (the invitation) was never about a personal agenda. It was always about Nigeria!
“The decisions that we took, the positions we adopted, and the interventions that we embarked on were in the interest of the nation,” he added.
