Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi west at the national assembly, has pledged absolute loyalty to Senate President Bukola Saraki, saying only death could make him stop supporting the countryâ€™s number three citizen.
There has been pressure on Saraki to step down as a result of his ongoing trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), but Melaye has insisted that the senate president will complete his four years tenure.
Hereâ€™s what the senator wrote on his Facebook page;
â€œMy brother and friend Sen. Bukola Saraki, if you have 1 trillion supporters, Iâ€™m one,â€ he wrote.
â€œIf you have one billion, Iâ€™m one; if you have one million, Iâ€™m one. If you have one thousand, Iâ€™m one; if you have ten, Iâ€™m one; if you have only one supporter, Iâ€™m one and if you have no single supporter, it means Iâ€™m dead. No shaking. Four years tooo sure.â€
