Bukola Saraki 1 - CCT clears senate president, Bukola Saraki of all charges

The Code of Conduct Tribunal(CCT) has cleared the Senate president, Bukola Saraki of all the 18 charges of non-declaration of assets filed against him by the Nigerian government.

Saraki’s 2 year battle with the CCT came to an end today after the panel passed a judgement today on Saraki’s no case submission.

The former Kwara state governor through his no-case submission filed before the CCT on May 26, 2017, contended that none of the evidence and exhibits tendered by the four prosecution witnesses linked him to the alleged offences to warrant him to defend the charges.



The CCB had on September 16, 2015, filed a 13-count charge against Saraki for alleged false and anticipatory declaration of assets.The charges were increased to 15 on April 18, 2016, and another charge was added on April 27, 2016, to make it 16.It was further increased to 17 on January 11, 2017, and finally to 18 on February 23, 2017.
