Northern leaders want Saraki's CCT trial stopped

30 March 2016, 13:05

Abuja - Political leaders in the North-Central zone and members of civil society organizations, have called for the discontinuation of the ongoing trial of the Senate president, Bukola Saraki, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

The political leaders on the platform of Leaders of Thought, North Central Zone, at a briefing in Ilorin, rejected the CCT’s judgment of March 24, 2016.

The spokesman of the group, Senator Ahmed Mohammed, called on President Muhammadu Buhari, not to be care-free to the alleged injustice and abuse of legal system in the country by the chairman of the CCT.

He said the group decided to speak about the trial of the President of the Senate Bukola Saraki before the Code of Conduct Tribunal because of the pronouncement of Justice Danladi Umar which established clearly that double standard is reigning supreme.

Justifying their call for president president’s intervention, Mohammed noted that Saraki did not only deliver Kwara State 100% to All Progressives Congress, APC, in the last general elections, he was a pillar in the North central.

Also speaking, the secretary general of the Coalition of Civil Society Organisation, Basambo Abubakar, said the senate president represented the face of Nigerian youths and students, contending that Saraki was the face of tomorrow for Nigerian students and youths.

Saraki last week Thursday lost his bid to stop his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
