This came after the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) applied for the withdrawal of the charges on Friday.

It is widely believed that the decision of the government to drop charges against Goje is as a result of his withdrawal from the Senate Presidency race, which paved an easy victory for Senator Ahmed Lawan.
