Politicians Have Hijacked Code Of Conduct Tribunal – Kwara APC

Code of Conduct Tribunal HQThe Kwara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused some unnamed politicians of hijacking the Code of Conduct Tribunal and warned that the judiciary may throw the country into needless chaos.
In a statement issued by its publicity secretary, Alhaji Sulyman Buhari, the party said President Muhammadu Buhari should not be seen to be watching helplessly while politicians hijack a crucial arm of government to carry out political vendetta against perceived political adversaries.
“For anyone who ever doubted our position that the trial of the Senate president is not an anti-corruption drive but political persecution and witch-hunt, Thursday’s ruling of the tribunal shows that the CCT is being manipulated and remote-controlled by some desperate politicians.
“Given identical cases, Nigerians should note that the CCT under Justice Umar Danladi discharged and acquitted a leader of APC in 2011 based on Section 3 (d) of the CCB/CCT Act. Why is the Senate president’s motion on the same Section 3 (d) of the CCB/CCT Act being denied by the same tribunal under the same judge?” the Kwara APC said.
