The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Friday reacted to the Supreme Court verdict which dismissed the assets declaration charges instituted against the Senate President, Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT.
PDP described the ruling as a “triumph of justice.”
The party said the Supreme Court, by the judgment, “reinforced the confidence of Nigerian citizens in the courage of the institution of the judiciary, as the temple of justice and the last hope of the common man, particularly under an oppressive regime.”
In a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP said the “judgment has further supported its disposition that the Buhari Presidency’s fight against corruption is mere shadow-chasing and a clever attempt at blackmailing the opposition as well as anyone who holds a divergent voice against this administration.
“The party said the judgment should serve as a spur for all judicial officers at all levels to be bold in upholding the dispensation of justice in all cases without fear, let or politically induced hindrances.”
