CCT absolves Saraki ...Nigerians React.



The Code of Conduct Tribunal has dismissed the case of false asset declaration against Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki. Saraki made a no-case submission on May 4, after the prosecution closed its case. Bukola Saraki was accused by EFCC of not declaring some of his assets at the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB). Danladi Umar, the tribunal chairman, in his ruling said the prosecution had failed to successfully prove its allegations. 

In an unanimous decision read by Justice Abdul Aboki, the five-man panel ruled that the appeal lacked merit and thus totally dismissed. The tribunal said the failure of the prosecution to present witnesses who were fully part of the alleged offence against the senate president, made their evidence “incurably defective”.

Nigerians meanwhile, have taken to social media to express basically "Have Their Say" on news that the Code of Conduct Tribunal had cleared Senate President, Bukola Saraki, of false asset declaration charges. Read some of their comments below:
