The President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki has expressed disappointment at the ruling by the Supreme Court dismissing his appeal against his trial by the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
A statement issued on Friday by his Media Adviser, Yusuph Olaniyonu, noted that the Senate President was alarmed that the apex court dismissed the six grounds on which he filed the appeal.
The statement reads: “The Senate President however will like to put it on record that the facts of the substantial matter are not before the Supreme Court since the apex court was only invited to rule on some preliminary issues in the process of commencing the trial.
“The Senate President believes he will have his day in the court to prove his innocence of the charges preferred against him during the trial proper.
“Dr. Saraki will like to thank everyone who has expressed support for him from the beginning of the case. He assures everyone that at the end of the day truth will prevail and justice will be served.”
