A chieftain of the APC, Comrade Timi Frank, has commended the Senate President Bukola Saraki, for showing courage and submission during his trial at the over allegation of false asset declaration.
In a press statement Wednesday, June 14, Comrde Frank declared that God has vindicated Saraki with the CCT’s verdict.
The CCT had dismissed the case of false asset declaration against Saraki following his no-case submission on May 4.
Comrade Frank stated that the ruling by the tribunal chairman, Danladi Umar, that the prosecution team failed to prove the allegation against the Senate President shows that “it was initially a mere political victimisation engineered by a section of the ruling class.”
Comrade Frank, while commending the tribunal for allowing justice to prevail at the end, said the judgement will make the Senate president to be more focused in making laws that will positively impact on humanity.
He thanked all the APC leaders and supporters across the country who stood by and believe in the leadership of Senator Saraki even while the case was going on. “Now that the case has been laid to rest, I call on our leaders to come together and form a united force for the sake of our party and the progress of the Nigerian project,” he said.
Frank added that the victory is not for Senator Saraki alone but Nigerians at large, even as he called on both the executive and legislative arms of government to work together to raise living standard of Nigerians.
Similarly, the Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, has described the victory of Saraki at the CCT as another victory of Nigerians over tyranny.
Fayose said he was happy that he predicted that the CCT will absolve Saraki in his predictions made in December 2016 and “it has come to pass.”
