CCT trial: FG wants S’Court to restore 18 counts against Saraki

Senate President, Bukola Saraki

The Federal Government has appealed to the Supreme Court to restore all the 18 false assets declaration and other related charges instituted against the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, but which were dismissed by the Code of Conduct Tribunal in June 2017.

In its December 12, 2017 judgment, the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal had restored three out of the 18 counts, but affirmed the decision of the CCT with respect to the rest of the 15 counts on the grounds of lack of evidence.

Saraki had since filed a seven-ground notice of appeal against the part of the Court of Appeal’s judgment restoring the three counts.
