Bukola Saraki Wins, As CCT Clears Him Of False Asset Declaration Charges

Bukola Saraki

The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has dismissed the charges of false asset declaration against Senate President, Bukola Saraki. Chairman of the tribunal, Danladi Umar, in his ruling this morning, said the prosecution team had failed to provide sufficient evidence to prove that Saraki was indeed guilty of false asset declaration.

On May 4, the senate president told the tribunal that he would file a no-case submission, which implies that he is not opening a defence but asking the tribunal to discharge him of the charges because there is no case against him.

In a ruling on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, CCT chairman, Umar Danjuma said the prosecution failed to prove the case of false asset declaration against Saraki.

Umar dismissed all 13-count charge against Saraki.
