Senate charge CCT Chairman with corruption in fight for Saraki

CCT Chairman Danladi Umar summoned by the Senate in corruption charges.
This is pretty much embarrassing,i can't believe these senators are throwing so much impunity in the faces of Nigerians.Amidst the ongoing trial of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges, and Public Petitions yesterday April 18th, summoned the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Danladi Umar, asking him to appear before it unfailing by 2pm on Thursday April 21st.
They have tried almost anything to stop this Saraki trial.I am beginning to wonder if it is really worth prosecuting Nigeria.Because it looks like Nigerians are the ones who are going
to lose out.We are the collateral damage.

If these men are blatantly doing all these in support of Saraki and in trying to stop the trial,what is gonna happen if Saraki is found guilty and has to step down?Won't these men find a way to get back at Buhari and the powers at APC? Then it becomes a war,they will forget things that need to be done for the benefit of Nigeria and instead try to scupper any project that Buhari and the APC proposes.We can see that already with the Lagos Calabar rail project.
The on goings here are so blatant that it is incredible,really can't believe it.
Dino Melaye and Saraki.

A letter sent to the CCT Chairman indicated that he was being summoned to answer questions of corruption leveled against him by an anti-corruption group, Anti Corruption Netwrk led by Senator Dino Melaye.
The summon came after the senate yesterday protested the trial proceedings of Saraki when the senate was in session. Saraki is facing 13 counts of false assets declaration and fraud before the CCT.  CCT Chairman during the hearing yesterday ordered that Saraki's trial be conducted daily. In his reply to the senate's protest, the CCT Chairman said the senate's plenary can still continue without Saraki as he was the one facing trial and not the whole senate.
The anti-corruption group in its petition before the senate, alleged that Danladi withdrew N1 million from the CCT's account in July 2011 to sponsor his own wedding. They also allege he spent N15.2 million to purchase a Toyota Prado sport utility vehicle “without following due process”.

The group is also alleging that Danladi awarded contracts for the supply of office furniture and fittings at N11.3 million in March 2011 to an engineering company and not a furniture company.

According to the group, the contract is suspicious. Danladi is to appear before the senate to answer questions bothering on these allegations.
