Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), The Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), on Wednesday said he was shocked by the acquittal of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
Sagay said he followed the case closely and was convinced that the prosecution presented sufficient evidence to secure a conviction. However having a no-case submission despite all the evidences tendered at the court was very shocking to him.
While speaking on the matter he said, “To start with, I’m shocked, because a lot of materials were put before the court. And for a court to uphold a no-case submission means that there was no prima facie case made.
“That’s why I’m a bit shocked because I followed the proceedings very closely.
“But there’s going to be an appeal. We’ll just wait and see happen then, but I’m thoroughly shocked, yes.”
