CCT trial: APC call Saraki to order now – Agoro


By; Bayo Akamo, Ibadan.
Former Presidential Candidate of the National Action Council (NAC), Dr Olapade Agoro Friday asked the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to call the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki to order in his on going trial by the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
Dr Agoro in a statement made available to journalists in Ibadan titled “Bukola Saraki, Nigeria’s epitome of lawlessness, shamelessness” alleged the Senate President of turning the nation’s courts into “theatre of absurdity, harassing innocent judges and the temple of justice with reckless and frivolous applications enough to intimidate jelly minded ones among the judges.
The NAC leader why wondering if there was anything to the Saraki trial “hidden beyond what we other Nigerians should know”, pointed out that “irrespective of what may be the hidden reasons, it is time Bukola Saraki’s bluff was cut to size in the best interest of rule of law, sanctity of temple of justice and respect to our Judges who are agents on earth of the Almighty God. Author of justice”
“Why on earth is the All Progressive Congress (APC) Bukola Saraki’s political party in power at the national level and particularly in the Senate incapable and unable to cage him if only to justify its change mantra noise making?” he said.
Dr Agoro added “in the annals of socio-political and historical development of Nigeria, no one on record would be found and or could be said to have brazenly and shamelessly held a sharp edged knife to the jugular of the nation’s judicial and judiciary system  like Bukola Saraki the Senate President”.
“Not even the greats of our time like Mahatma Gandhi and Chief Jeremiah Obafemi Awolowo, although both Lawyers of honour and awful respect commanding employed ill gotten wealth to harass the cause of justice throughout their travail and trial periods before the law courts of their time. Incidentally President Muhammad Buhari now Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces also went through harrowing and painful experience of court trials in attempt to claim a mandate but without ever contemplating to hold the judiciary and judicial system to standstill”.
