Sagay Blasts Senate Over Decision On IGP Idris
The chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Professor Itse Sagay has blasted the Senate for describing Ibrahim Idris as the enemy of democracy.
Senate on wednesday described the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris as an enemy of democracy after he shunned the invitation for the third time.
Reacting, Sagay in a statement said the action of the senators, who visited their colleagues under trial was the real abandonment of democracy.
He said: “Absolutely not! I don’t think the IGP has constituted himself as enemy of our democracy.
“It is the conduct of the senate that constitutes danger to democracy because of the way they frequently abandon their constitutional responsibilities and move en masse to engage in solidarity visits to their individual members who are undergoing trial in hospitals or other places. That is an indication of abandonment of democracy.
“They have regularly abused their rights under this democracy and have demonstrated that they are not sufficiently mature to operate in liberal democracy. That is what I have seen”.
