Saraki arrived in the state on Tuesday, July 17, before he rode in the open roof of a vehicle in a motorcade.

His supporters waved and sang victory songs in his name.

Asked by journalists what he will do over the pressure by some of his followers to lead them out of the APC, Saraki declined to comment and asked newsmen not to ‘worry’ or ‘push’ him over the matter.

“As I said, don’t worry, don’t push me, I will call at a time and I will tell Nigerians,” he said.

Commenting on his trial for alleged false assets declaration, Saraki described his three-year trial as tough but expressed satisfaction that his followers never doubted his innocence as he had told them on many occasions.
