Saraki Petitions Federal High Court CJ

senate president bukola saraki

The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has demanded that Justice Abdul Kafarati of the Federal High Court, Abuja be allowed to deliver judgement in his fundamental rights enforcement suit.

Justice Kafarati last Tuesday withheld his judgement in the case and announced his withdrawal on the ground that reports by some on-line media, Sahara Reporters and alleged that he had been bribed by the Senate President.

Saraki, in a protest letter dated March 22, 2016 by his lawyer, Prince Ajibola Oluyede, to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, noted that although he sympathises with the judge, the interest of justice will only be served if the judgement was delivered.

Oluyede, while speaking with journalists yesterday, after the submission of the letter to the CJ, Federal High Court, accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of being behind the publications, which he said, were intended to intimidate the judge.

β€œIt is our argument in the suit that the Code of Conduct Tribunal cannot act independently the way it is currently constituted.
