CCB Charges Senate President Saraki With False Asset Declaration – Report

saraki-702x336The Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) has filed charges against Senate President Bukola Saraki for failure to fully declare his assets.

The tribunal’s 13-count charge accuses Saraki, among other crimes, of improperly using state funds to purchase private assets during his tenure as the governor of Kwara State while he was Senator.

The Senate President was also accused of declaring as part of his assets property that had not been sold to him, a manoeuver that is known as “anticipatory looting” in political lexicon.

Saraki’s wife, Toyin, is being investigated for money laundering by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), but no charge has been filed against her by the agency.

The Code of Conduct Tribunal has never convicted any Nigerian official for false declaration of assets.
