Eagle Square For All Nigerians -Saraki

  • Raps FG over Kwankwaso’s declaration   

BY VICTOR BUORO, ABUJA – President of the Nigerian Senate, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki has described the Eagle Square as a national asset that should be accessible to all Nigerians.

Reacting to the last minute cancellation of the approval for Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, to use the Eagle Square for his 2019 presidential declaration, Senator Saraki said such action is condemnable and capable of sending the wrong signals across the polity

Saraki said in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, in Abuja that the “Eagle Square belongs to all Nigerians” and the cancellation sends a wrong message about the tolerance level in our politics.

“The refusal to allow Senator Kwankwaso to utilize the Eagle Square for his Presidential declaration, despite an earlier approval, sends a wrong message about our democracy, particularly the tolerance level in our politics.”

According to the Senate President; “That Square belongs to all Nigerians because it was built with public funds”, adding: “We hope this is not what we will be seeing as we approach the 2019 General Elections.”
