‘I will prove my innocence’ | Saraki reacts to Supreme Court ruling

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki has reacted to the ruling of the Supreme Court delivered on Friday, February 5.

The Supreme Court ruled that Saraki would have to face the Code of Conduct Tribunal which is seeking to investigate the Senate President for false declaration of assets between 2003 and 2007, when he served as governor of Kwara state.

In a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuf Olaniyonu- Saraki, after listening to the judgement of the Supreme Court, is disappointed over the ruling on the six grounds of his appeal.

According to the statement, “the facts of the substantial matter are not before the Supreme Court since the apex court was only invited to rule on some preliminary issues in the process of commencing the trial.”

“The Senate President believes he will have his day in the court to prove his innocence of the charges preferred against him during the trial proper.”
