Supreme court to deliver judgement on Saraki's appeal today-Alleged asset falsification

The Supreme Court will today deliver judgment in an appeal filed by Senate President, Bukola Saraki, seeking to quash the 13-count charge of false asset declaration filed against him by the Federal Government. In 2015, FG dragged Saraki before the Code of Conduct tribunal over allegations of asset falsification while he served as Governor of Kwara state.

Saraki who has appeared before the tribunal, is challenging the authority of the tribunal to try him and also asking the apex court to quash the charges leveled against him. His appeal at the Supreme Court will be heard by a seven-man panel of Justices led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Mahmud Mohammed.
