Nigeria: Code of Conduct Bureau Slam Saraki with 13-Count Corruption Charge

It will appear that the attempt to remove the Senate President Dr Bukola Saraki is still very much on. The Code of Conduct Bureau on September 11 2015 filed 13-count corruption charged against Saraki. The charges were filed by M S Hassan, a Deputy Director in the office of the Attorney General of the Federation.

The charges against Saraki include:

– Making false declaration of assets on assumption of office as Kwara State Governor in 2003
– Not declaring assets acquired while in office
– Operating foreign accounts as a public officer

and more.

Is this truly a fight against corruption or a fight to remove Saraki? It will be recalled that Saraki’s wife was invited by EFCC in connection with some corruption charges. After this, the EFCC head was investigated by the Senate and accused of wrongful diversion of funds.

Saraki is sure to fight back. Nigerians are watching with keen interest as the drama unfolds.

Find below scanned copies of the charge sheets.

Is the code of conduct court just waking up, or some people haven’t given up on removing him as a senate president ? Abeg let’s leave persecution if we want to prosecute

Its very unfortunate that we are still very busy building strong individuals, as against strong institutions. Asset the man declared in 2003, its now that the code of conduct bureau,woke of from slumber to realise they have a constitutional responsibility for Nigeria. It took the code of conduct 12 years, to realise that Saraki’s, asset declaration was false. One wonders if they were still been paid salaries and allowances within these years of no noticeably activity. They will soon go asleep once again and wait for another perceived political bad boy, to the high and mighty. Sorry.
