Alleged false declaration of assets: Bukola Saraki must face trial – Appeal Court

The Court of Appeal and the Federal High Court, both sitting in Abuja, yesterday, refused to shield the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki from being arraigned at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, on a 13-count criminal charge bordering on false declaration of assets preferred against him. The Senate President had approached both courts to provide him shelter and save him from being docked.
