The Yoruba Council of Youths (YCY), an umbrella body for Yoruba youth organizations has criticized the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) for “displaying the hand of Esau and the voice of Jacob” as regards the current legal tussle with Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

Speaking during a press conference held in Abuja on Monday, September 21, 2015 the YCY directly accused President Muhammadu Buhari of orchestrating Saraki’s ordeal in order to delay the constitution of a cabinet so as to continue running the country alone.

YCY President, Aremo Oladotun Hassan, who addressed a press conference criticised the CCB and CCB for acting out the script given to it by President Buhari in desperation.

He said: “We challenge the ways and manner of the sudden crude methodology and hasty wake of the CCB and CCT to have bracingly ordered the Inspector General of Police to arrest Senator Bukola Saraki, without due diligence fair-hearing exercise of its inherent powers, over allegation of 2003 declared assets, conclusively raised the suspicion, doubt and act of omission, which informed the questionable intentions, impregnated with deceits and indirect high-handedness veil of the CCT.

“This portends great danger, that for CCB to have waited this long at the peak week of September Senate Screening of President Muhammodu Buhari’s proposed ministerial nominees, another attempt to postpone and elongate the appointment of Ministers.

“We vehemently resist all attempt to drag the hallowed seat of the Senate President and Dr. Bukola Saraki into the mud and mucky waters of nepotism, witch-hunting and blackmail, predicated on politically motivated power tussle and shenanigans of the internal APC party permutations of sharing formula of offices amongst its divided tents that formed All Progressives Congress (APC), which is the nucleus genesis that caused the current show of naked fire-powers and deadly force of shame; displaying the Hand of Esau and Voice of Jacob syndrome.”

The YCY also condemned Northern elders who called for Saraki’s resignation, asking Western leaders to speak against the prosecution, warning that “if this precedence is allowed to sail through, it will embolden the orchestras to cause more havoc, and no one will be insulated from this recycled style of leadership, leaving all of us in the helpless torture chamber and humiliation, in the prey hands of this political mafias and cabals.”
