Saraki Corruption Trial: Kwara APC Expresses Shock over S/Court Verdict



The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State has described yesterday’s Supreme Court judgment against Senate President Bukola Saraki as disappointing, surprising and shocking.

Saraki had filed an appeal to stop his trial by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) over the alleged false declaration of assets.

In a statement yesterday, the APC spokesperson in the state, Alhaji Sulyman Buhari, urged the party’s supporters and members to remain calm.

The statement reads in part: “Kwara APC, therefore, reiterates its position that the ordeal of the Senate President is not an anti-corruption driven case, but a politically-motivated prosecution aimed at undermining the person and the office of the Senate President.

”Kwara APC acknowledges and appreciates the resilience, loyalty and support shown thus far by our teeming members and supporters.

”The party urges its members to embrace calmness, peace and tranquility ýas the innocence of the Senate President will be proved in due course and justice will prevail over political shenanigans.”
