Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki has said that he would not resign from his position, despite his ongoing false asset declaration trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT). According to Saraki, the trial is an act of persecution and not an actual fight against corruption.
Saraki said this on Friday at Landmark Events Centre in Lagos during a social media week event organised by State- Craft Inc. the theme was; ‘Did You Say Change? Game Changers of the 2015 Nigerian elections.’
He stated that his trial was the handiwork of powerful people who were unhappy with his emergence as Senate President. The Senate President said that when he got into office as a civil servant 13 years ago; he filled the asset declaration form which is a must for all public servants to fill once they enter office.
