BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Nigeria Code of Conduct Tribunal has commenced hearing of allegation of false assets declaration by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
The accusation against Saraki was dated to his tenure as the Governor of Kwara State (2003-2011)
Addressing the Tribunal, the Deputy Director in the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation, M.S.Hassan, who filed the charges against the National Assembly (NASS) Chairman, last week (September 11), prayed for issuance of bench arrest warrant on Saraki. The respondent is facing 13 count charge before the Tribunal.
However, the arrest warrant is now being legally contested as the substantive attorney General and Minister of Justice is said to be the only person constitutionally eligible to plead for such warrant.
