Presidency says Buhari has nothing to do with Saraki's code of conduct trial trial.
The way i see this is very simple,if you are charged to court for an offence you have not committed,why would you be worried? The whole world is watching,you are the senate president with all the money in the world to hire a competent lawyer,the fact that Saraki was taking an injunction out to stop the trial,shows he is guilty,full stop! What happened to the days when innocent men could not wait to get to court to prove their innocence? This is an open trial,so every Nigerian will see what is going on.Face your trial like a man and clear your name Bukola Saraki.It does not matter why you were charged.Witch hunting or demon
hunting.What is important is your innocence or guilt.
In a statement released this evening by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, President Buhari distanced himself from the ongoing trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Bureau. In the statement, Shehu said that the laws binding the Code of Conduct bureau and Tribunal forbids interference from external forces from any quarters.
Garba said those who were accusing Buhari of witch hunting Saraki are uninformed
"This therefore is purely a judicial process and has nothing to do with the Presidency. Let them hire a good team of lawyers to prove their innocence. Government has no desire to persecute anybody. The President has vowed to respect the rule of law and this is what he is doing by staying out of this matter. He has said times without number that the war against corruption has no sacred cows," the statement in part read.
