ABUJA, NIGERIA (AFRICAN EXAMINER – Court of Appeal in Abuja Tuesday reserved its judgement on the Federal Government FG’s Appeal, challenging the acquittal of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki on his false and anticipated assets declaration trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
As the hearing resumed, the three-man panel headed by Justice Tinuade Akomolafe-Wilson instead of reading its judgement, after parties in the suit have adopted their briefs, simply said the date of the judgment would be communicated to all concerned in the case later.
It would be recalled that FG upon the loss at the CCT had on June 22, 2017, filed an 11-ground notice of appeal against the June 14, 2017 ruling.
Senator Saraki was then being arraigned before the special court on 18 charges of false asset declaration and other related offences in September 2015.
Saraki has boasted he would again dust the appellant, as he insisted the trial was politically motivated.
