FG line up El-Rufai, four others to testify against Saraki in Tribunal Trial

-

- Advertisment -

The Federal Government recently lined-up five key witnesses including Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai to testify against Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on allegations of false declaration of assets, corruption leveled on him by the Code of Conduct Bureau.

Saraki appeared before the Code of Conduct Tribunal yesterday for the first time, following his non-appearance on Friday.

He is standing a 13-count charge on false statements in his 2003 assets declaration as Kwara State governor.

Reports have it that the Federal Government lined up the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, and four others to testify in the case.

There are speculations that he signed off one of the property bought by Saraki in Abuja which the CCB alleged Saraki failed to file in his assets declaration.

The CCB prosecuting counsel, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN) said on the trial: “We have gathered enough evidence to prove that the defendant made anticipatory assets declaration.”
