The Senate president Bukola Saraki is facing the biggest challenge of his political life.

The Senate president
Bukola Saraki is facing the
biggest challenge of his
political life.
Having served as a two-term
governor of Kwara state,
chairman of Nigeria
Governors Forum, second-
term senator and currently
Nigeria’s number three
citizen, these are indeed dire
times for the scion of the
Saraki dynasty.
When the chairman of the
Code Of Conduct Tribunal
(CCT), Danladi Umar, issued
an arrest warrant for Saraki
for false declaration of
assets, it was the first time in
Nigerian history that a
sitting senate president will
be so humiliated.
The 53-year old was accused
of failing to declare some
assets he acquired while in
office as governor of Kwara
state, acquiring assets
beyond his legitimate
earnings, and also accused
of operating foreign
accounts even as a state
executive.
The Senate president has
since denied the allegations.
He went ahead to say that he
declared his assets in 2007,
2011, and recently in 2015,
and the Code of Conduct
Bureau (CCB) never wrote to
complain of any
inconsistencies.
Below is a lists five
punishments that will be
melted out to Saraki as listed
out by the CCB, if he is found
guilty in the ongoing trial.
Read below:-
1. Removal from office.
2. Vacation of official seat in
the legislature, as the case
may be.
3. Imposition of fine.
4. Disqualification from
membership of the
legislature and from holding
of any public office for a
period not exceeding 10
years.
5. Seizure and forfeiture of
the state of any property
(ies) acquired in abuse or
corruption of office.
Do you think Saraki will Win
at the Tribunal?
