Nigerians demand justice for Saraki, accuse Tinubu

The Senate president, Bukola Saraki is standing trial for a 13 count charge of corruption including false asset declaration filed against him by the federal government at the code of conduct tribunal (CCT).

Saraki is alleged to have lied about the assets he declared in 2003, when he was still the governor of Kwara state. In a recent move to evade justice, Saraki has sued the chairman, Danladi Umar and others involved in his trial before the federal high court.

The Senate president in the suit is contending that his trial before the code of conduct tribunal, as currently constituted is a violation of his right, insisting there was no way he could get justice.

Political observers and highly placed Nigerians, who have watched intensely with fingers crossed over the revelation and happenings at the ongoing trial of the Senate president took to a micro-blogging site (Twitter) to hashtag #JusticeForSaraki and make public their stance on the matter.

Some of the concerned Nigerians recalled that the former governor of Lagos state now a national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu had similar issue in September 2011 under the administration of then president Goodluck Jonathan, but was left off the hook.

Just recently, the publicity secretary of the Lagos state chapter of the APC, Joe Igbokwe in a statement berated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the state for calling on the CCT to re-visit the case against Tinubu.

The state’s publicity secretary said the PDP’s call was targeted at tarnishing the image of the APC national leader.
