Pro-Lawan group asks Saraki to resign

06 February 2016, 13:00

Abuja - The anti-Saraki senators, under the aegis of the Senate Unity Forum, has asked the Senate President Dr. Bukola Saraki to  resign.

The group, following Friday’s Supreme Court judgement on the trial of the Senate President at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, said that Saraki must resign as the president of the senate.

The group which supported Senator Ahmed Lawan, during the Senate presidential election in June last year, said the senate president is not morally fit to lead the senate following his trial at the Code of Conduct.

The anti-Saraki senators demanded the immediate resignation of Senate President so that he could concentrate on his trial at the CCT.

The Supreme Court had on Friday dismissed the appeal by the Senate President, challenging the propriety of his trial on charges of false assets declaration preferred against him at the CCT.

In its judgement, the apex court declared that Saraki’s CCT trial is proper and in order.

The Code of Conduct Bureau had leveled a 13-count criminal charge against the former Kwara State Governor before the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) over alleged false declaration of assets.

Saraki was accused of deliberately manipulating the assets declaration form that he filled prior to his assumption of office as the Senate President, by making anticipatory declaration of assets as well as operated foreign bank account while in office as a public servant.
