The case against the  Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has been ruled out by the Code Of Conduct Tribunal,according to the reports, the senate president has no case to answer no case to answer in the 18 charges of non-declaration of assets brought against him by the Federal Government.

The CCB had on September 16, 2015 filed a 13-count charge against Saraki for alleged false and anticipatory declaration of assets. The charges were increased to 15 on April 18, 2016 and another charge was added on April 27, 2016 to make it 16.

 

The government later increased the charges to 17 on January 11, 2017 and finally to 18 on February 23, 2017. The Danladi Umar-led two-man panel of the CCT had reserved its ruling after hearing Saraki’s no-case submission and the Federal Government’s objection to it on June 8.

The Senate President, through his no-case submission filed before the CCT on May 26, 2017, contended that none of the exhibits tendered and no evidence given by the four prosecution witnesses linked him to the alleged offences to warrant him to defend the charges.
