Senator Dino Melaye has paid homage to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, describing him as the defender of Nigeria’s democracy.
Melaye said this in his message to Saraki after the Senate President lost his re-election bid in Kwara state.
APC’s Ibrahim Oloriegbe defeated the incumbent Senate President to ensure that Saraki would not be returning to the Senate in May.
Melaye has now praised Saraki, describing him as a patriot. He wrote on twitter:
“Sen Bukola Saraki the indefatigable defender of our democracy. True Patriot and promoter of our national Heritage. Every orchestration, gang up, manipulation and deliberate wickedness against you is temporal and evaporative. You remain my boss, brother and friend. I love you.”
Unlike Saraki, Melaye would be returning to the Senate after defeating Smart Adeyemi in the Kogi West Senatorial election.
