Following the Asset declaration case filed against the Senate President – Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), the Supreme Court had dismissed the case in favour of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
In reaction to his victory, Dino Melaye – the Senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly has congratulated Senate President Bukola Saraki on his victory at the Supreme Court.
On his instagram handle, he posted an enthusiastic picture of him lifting the Senate President above the ground and said:
“Congratulations my man, brother, oga and friend. Owo bagadagodo won.”
The case against the Senate President has been acquitted after 1,018 days of trial, especially as the Supreme Court has affirmed that there is no evidence of false declaration of assets.
Justice Centus Nweze of the Supreme Court in his ruling has described the decision of the Court of Appeal against Saraki as “the juridical equivalent of a forensic somersault and the court cannot lend its support to a caricature of justice”.
