Minority leader of the senate, Godswill Akpabio, says the trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) slowed down the economy.
Speaking on Thursday, Akpabio told his colleagues that the prices of stocks went up at the stock exchange after Saraki was cleared.
A sign, he says, that the economy is “bouncing back”.
“It’s a good sign that the economy is bouncing back as a result of the victory. Mr President I was listening to Channels Television… I heard of what happened at the stock exchange, shares prices went up,” he said.
“This is an indication that even the trial was slowing down the economy. I want to congratulate Nigerians for this.”
