Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, has warned the federal government not to set a bad precedent for the country in the ongoing trial of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, over false assets declaration.
The forum, which is the umbrella body of the leaders of thought in the North, warned that the federal government through the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT must not give a predetermined judgment against Saraki for political reasons as doing so, will not be in the best interest of this country.
Former Senator and National Vice Chairman, Arewa Consultative Forum, Joseph Waku, described the on-going prosecution of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, as a premeditated trial that will bring no justice to the defendant (Saraki).
Addressing judiciary correspondents after observing the court session on behalf ACF, Waku claimed that from all indications and the conduct of the proceedings, the Tribunal Chairman, Mr. Danladi Umar was being teleguided by external forces.
“I think that Nigeria is again moving through a trying period of judicial process and I make bold to say that the prosecution does not have prerogative of knowledge but from the look of things, there is already a teleguided and premeditated judgment that one expect to see in future and that may not be good for this country.”
The former Senator, who claimed that he was sent to the Tribunal by the national leadership of the ACF, said that he was not impressed with the performance of the Tribunal in the trial.
“I was mandated by the Arewa Consultative Forum to come here as an observer and watch the proceedings and go back to report what I have found.
“My observations are that there is a premeditated something that is going on in this country. The judiciary is on trial, the country is on trial, the Justices are on trial and we are watching to see, because similar cases have gone on before and we know how they ended.
“So, my observations here are those things that I have witnessed and I have to go back to the mother organisations to report my findings based on what I witnessed, what I have seen and the way I have looked at it.”
On the likely implication of predetermined judgement, he said, “It will not be good for judicial process, it is not going to be good for democracy and it will not be in the best interest of the ‘Change’ that we are looking for.
“In as much as we are against corruption, let the legal process take its due cognisance of the fact that it is the last hope of the ordinary and common persons. That is my observation”, he concluded.

    SARAKI’S THEFTS AND LOOTINGS OF THE NATIONAL TREASURY ARE GLARINGLY IMMENSE AND ALREADY PROVEN BEYOND ANY DOUBT. SARAKI’S PUNISHMENT SHOULD BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH HIS FINANCIAL CRIMES AGAINST NIGERIA, KEEPING IN MIND THAT PETTY THIEVES HAVE BEEN IMPRISONED FOR UP TO 2 YEARS FOR STEALING ONLY A FEW NAIRA. ALSO, SARAKI HAS MISUSED AND ABUSED HIS POSITION TO CONTINUE TO STICK TO HIS SENATORIAL JOB DESPITE THE HEAVY WEIGHT OF ALLEGATIONS ON HIM WHICH WARRANTED HIM TO RESIGN HIS POST WHICH HE NEVER DID.

    CLEARLY, SARAKI HAS FURTHER DISGRACED THE ALREADY VERY CORRUPT SENATE. MOST OF OUR SENATORS ARE OVERFED POT-BELLY THIEVES AND FINANCIAL CRIMINALS LOOTING OUR NATIONAL TREASURY UNABATED JUST LIKE SARAKI.

    SARAKI DESERVES A PUNISHMENT BEFITTING TO HIS FINANCIAL CRIMES AGAINST NIGERIA.
