|Stop Wasting Our Time, Saraki's Counsel Tells CCT - Thebriefng by JDellagio: 3:35pm On Mar 18, 2016|
Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, Danladi Umar, has fixed March 24 for ruling on an application of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to dismiss the charges of false declaration of assets filed against him by the Federal Government.
Counsel to Saraki, Kanu Agabi (SAN), had urged the CCT, dismiss his client’s case as it lacked merit as the tribunal did not have the jurisdiction to even seat over the case.
Agabi described the charges as frivolous, pointing out that it was merely a personal vendetta against his client by a political opponent who felt he had been embarrassed by his client.
“Politicians are fighting on the Streets. One of them is beaten and he has come to the Court. He wants to use the court to settle the scores; to achieve what he could not achieve on the streets,” he said.
The prosecuting counsel, Rotimi Jacobs, also submitted that the CCT had in another judgement, admitted that it erroneously freed former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, in 2011.
The implication of this disclosure 5 years after, is that Tinubu is still liable to being charged before the CCT.
