Senate President Bukola Saraki has been challenged by the Federal Government in a notice of appeal filed against his acquittal by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT). The Federal Government filed the 11 grounds notice of appeal after the tribunal led by Danladi Umar dismissed the government’s case against the former Kwara state Governor on June 14.The notice of appeal considered the acquittal as an overruling of previous decisions by the Court of Appeal in respect to the Senate President’s trial, calling it, “unwarranted, unreasonable and against the weight of evidence”. The notice was signed by the lead prosecuting counsel and an Assistant Chief State Counsel in the Federal Ministry of Justice said the tribunal’s decision was wrong in its consideration of the case.In last week’s ruling, Umar said the prosecution failed to prove the case of the 18-count false assets declaration charge against Saraki who had filed a no-case submission at the tribunal on May 4.
