Presidency denies involvement in Senate President’s ordeal.
The Presidency has issued a statement distancing itself from the travails of the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, in a statement said "Views to the effect that the Code of Conduct Bureau,CCB and the Code of Conduct Tribunal,CCT can only act upon external instigation are equally uninformed."
Adding that "As an independent institution equal to any superior court of record, the tribunal is set up by the constitution to determine the issue of default, false declaration or forgery in assets declaration. This therefore is purely a judicial process and has nothing to do with the presidency.”
"If anyone has an axe to grind with what they are doing, they should do it in a judicial manner by challenging those actions in a proper court of law. Let them hire a good team of lawyers to prove their innocence,” Shehu said
