The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has reacted to a media report alleging that a civil servant in Kwara State was sacked for reportedly criticising him on Facebook.

The report on the social media, which gave the name of the civil servant as Biodun Baba, said he was arraigned in court on Thursday for calling Mr. Saraki “a bastard”, but that the charges were later dropped.

Mr. Saraki, Friday, said on Facebook that the report was “entirely untrue”.

“As a public servant who has subjected myself to the service of my country, I face criticism everyday from many quarters,” he wrote.

“However, this does not deter me. It never has. I learn from the constructive criticisms, and continue to work with my colleagues in the Senate to pass our legislative agenda for all Nigerians.

“I use social media. As such, I am a firm believer in freedom of speech and the use of social media to air out views.

“Throughout my time in public office, I have never attempted to stifle anyone’s freedom to speak his or her mind. This can be said of my time as a Governor, as a first time Senator, and now as the Senate President.

This will not change,” Mr Saraki said.
