Saraki hails verdict, thanks Nigerians

President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has reiterated his confidence in the judicial process and the ability of the Judiciary to do justice to all manners of men and in all circumstances.
In a statement he personally signed after the judgement of the Supreme Court yesterday, Saraki expressed gratitude to all Nigerians who had supported him since the case commenced three years ago.
He said: “At the end of a tortuous journey of 1018 Days, counting from September 22, 2015, when the case began at the Tribunal, I am happy that I have been vindicated.
The Supreme Court has affirmed that there is no evidence of false declaration of assets.
“This outcome has gladdened my heart and further strengthened my belief in this country and as well as my faith in the Almighty Allah, who is the righter of all wrongs.
God has vindicated me today before the judgement of man, and I am most thankful and humbled at His grace and infinite mercies.
“Ordinarily, I doubt anyone would be interested in the asset declaration form I filled over 15 years ago.
What we have seen is the opposite.
Instead of working together in the interest of the nation and to seek to do better for our people, we are fighting one another and using legal instruments to mount baseless accusations against one another.
“I believe in fighting corruption and I have made my own humble contributions to the fight against corruption in this country.
As a presidential aide, I initiated the process that led to the enactment of the Fiscal Responsibility Act.
I was the first governor to establish the Price Intelligence Unit which later metamorphosed into the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP) at the federal level.
“I thank Nigerians for standing by me through the difficult period of this trial.
The support of ordinary Nigerians and their faith in me, as well as their sophistication and discernment in seeing this case for what it was, has been a source of strength to me.”
