Senate President Bukola Saraki, drove himself into the National Assembly complex in a private vehicle after security agents laid siege on his convoy at his Apo residence this morning.
Saraki was not in the vehicle when a detachment of security operatives blocked his convoy at his Apo residence with the view to preventing them from leaving the house.
As early as 7:00am, senators loyal to Parliamentary Support Group (PSG) had started arriving the National Assembly while those loyal to the Senate President also trooped in.
It was gathered that the PSG had perfected a plan to hurriedly Impeach Saraki as soon as he honours the police invitation, as signatures were said to have been collected overnight.
Having sensed the sinister move by the opposing camp, Saraki decided to outsmart them by quickly sneaking into the National Assembly with a rickety vehicle he drove himself. And that’s why Nigerians can’t get enough of his political intelligence. See comments below
Just like Ronaldo, Saraki is a G.O.A.T
They parked the bus against him
But he still stepped up and Scored the Free Kick

1.Saraki got a tip that he'd be arrested.
2. Saraki decided not to sleep in his house
3. An empty convoy made its way to NASS
4. Police spends time blocking empty convoy
5. Saraki takes "keke napep" to NASS to oversee defection
6. Saraki won the game of chess.

The news of the sieges on the residences of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, is both troubling and unsettling. No democratic nation ought to treat the leadership of its Parliament like common criminals. https://t.co/TOh1yGXD6Y

Even if you don't like Bukola Saraki, respect his political skills.

There is a difference between Bukola Saraki and the office of the Senate President. In my opinion, today's moves by the Police are an affront on that office. And moves like this never happen without consequences on Democracy itself.

So Saraki’s convoy was a dummy as he was not in it . He probably didn’t even spend the night at his house .
He drove himself in a rickety car to the National Assembly complex .
