NIGERIAN SENATE PRESIDENT BUKONLA SARAKI DOCKED

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has finally appeared before the Code of Conduct Tribunal where he is being charged for alleged false declaration of assets.

Mr. Saraki failed to appear before the tribunal on Friday, and again on Monday, despite an arrest warrant issued against him.

He faces a 13-count charge bordering on corruption and false assets declaration.

Mr. Saraki said Monday that he would appear before the tribunal, after the Court of Appeal in Abuja dismissed his application for a stay of execution.

He arrived at the tribunal at about 9.320 a.m, accompanied by deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and other senators.

The tribunal has disallowed live broadcast of its proceedings.

Many in and outside the country are now openly questioning if Saraki should not do the most honourable thing and resign his appointment as Senate President in view of his current predicament and prevent further disgrace and dishonour to the office he occupies
