Saraki Faces Fresh Charges For Receiving Governor’s Salary As Senator by Ohammadike: 8:01pm On Apr 21, 2016
The Federal Government has amended the charges of false asset declaration preferred against the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, before the Code of Conduct Tribunal in Abuja.

With the amendment, Saraki will be facing two fresh charges in addition to the 13 counts originally preferred against him, which comprised false asset declaration and maintaining of offshore account while serving as Governor of Kwara State between 2003 and 2011.



The additional charges, include allegation that Saraki continued to receive salary and emoluments as Governor of Kwara State after the expiration of his tenure and at the same time, from the Federal Government as a senator between June 2011 and October 2013.

The offence is said to be contrary to section 6(a) of the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act. CAP. C15, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 and as incorporated under paragraph 2(a), Part I of the Fifth Schedule to the Constitution.

It is said to be punishable under section 23(2) of the code of conduct bureau and tribunal act as incorporated under paragraph 18, Part I of the Fifth Schedule to the Constitution.

The other additional charge is that Saraki failed to declare to the Code of Conduct Bureau on assumption of office as Governor of Kwara State in 2003, his leasehold interest leasehold in the property at 42, Remi Fani Kayode Street, Ikeja, Lagos.

He was said to have acquired the property in December 12, 1996 through his company, Skyview Properties Limited from First Finance trust Limited.

The offence is said to be contrary to section 15(1)(2) of the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act, CAP. C15, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004 and as incorporated under paragraph 11(1) and (2), Part I o the Fifth Schedule to the Constitution.

It is said to be punishable under section 23(2) of the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act as incorporated under paragraph 18, Part I of the Fifth Schedule to the Constitution.

Our correspondent learnt on Thursday shortly after Saraki’s ongoing trial before the CCT was adjourned till April 27 for further cross-examination of the first prosecution witness, that the Federal Government might further amend the charges before they will be read to the accused person.

It's only the EFCC that is still displaying their skills against Saraki ooo, when the main property broouhaha starts, the count charge go reach 500.
Saraki is gone. APC already have a replacement for him.

Rotimi Jacobs(SAN) and Umar Danladi(Judge) will teach him a lesson he will never forget.

Saraki might end up like Gadafi.... In Gadafi's word, I will fight with my last blood undecided where is he now Even when some countries agreed to offer him Asylum...
Same here with Saraki, the forces against him are more superior... He should just bow out and leave and go and enjoy his money... Otherwise Gadafi might be his hero grin grin grin

The script given to Danladi umar by his paymaster is no longer working as planned coz of saraki resiilent team of defense,so the quack justice has advised his paymaster to diversify with new charges against saraki thru EFCC lawyer Rotimi Jacobs to see if dis diversification will yield any fruit.
Nigeria is doomed with kangaroo justice like Danladi umar & illiterates like pmb.

It isn't raining on Saraki, IT IS POURINNGG!! shocked

He won't quit though, the leeches (his lawyers, peers & hangers on) will "encourage" him & to "fight" (despite knowing his case is baaaaaddd) so they can suck the essence out of him!!

Opportunists meet desperado, match made in CCT hell!! sad

But where is lalasticlala sef undecided

Amazing action by FG...he can not survive charges 14 & 15 respectively. Reasons:

- fresh in mind in the age of Twitter and Facebook
- no fire incidents reported from commercial banks
- Oluyede has exhausted all his windows
- Umar is now ever ready to finish the trial to move on to Orubebe
- APC is replacing him as SP

If this man scales through all these charges, then no one else in Nigeria deserves being called a criminal.
