Judgement in the appeal filed by the Federal government against the acquittal of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, by the Code of Conduct Tribunal has been reserved by the Court of Appeal.
Counsel to the Federal government and Bukola Saraki adopted their briefs respectively before the Justice Tinuade Akomolafe-Wilson-led three man panel on Tuesday.
The senate president was charged before the Code of Conduct Tribunal over false declaration of assets during his time as governor of Kwara state. After the prosecution closed its case, Saraki made a no-case submission before the Tribunal; which was upheld and led to his acquittal on all the charges. The present appeal is a sequel to the tribunal’s decision.
The date for the judgement is yet to be announced and would be communicated subsequently.
