Femi Falana (SAN) has called on Senate
President to resign, following a Supreme Court
ruling, dismissing an appeal by Saraki ,
challenging his trial by the Code of Conduct
Tribunal (CCT).
He said “Having undertaken to prove his
innocence at the Code of Conduct Tribunal
Senator Saraki should resign as senate president
so as to preserve the integrity of the National
Assembly.
“When Senators Chuba Okadigbo and Adolphus
Wabara were indicted they were made to step
down as senate presidents.”
The Supreme Court on Friday, February 5, 2016
ruled that the trial of Senate President, Bukola
Saraki on corruption charges must continue.
The Senate President who was accused of
asset declaration fraud by the Code of Conduct
Bureau (CCB), said he was disappointed at
Supreme Court’s decision.
Saraki also said he believes he will have his day
in the court to prove his innocence of the
charges preferred against him during the trial
proper.
