President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki says he remained unshaken over the decision of the Federal Government to appeal against the judgment of the Code of Conduct Tribunal which acquitted him of false and anticipatory declaration of assets when he was Governor of Kwara State.
The CCT had on June 15, 2017, discharged and acquitted Saraki of all 18 charges preferred against him.
The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami filed 11 grounds notice of appeal against the acquittal, describing the CCT’s judgment as unreasonable.
But, Saraki said he was confident that the verdict by the appellate court would not be different from that of the Tribunal as the facts of the case remained the same and the grounds on which the decision of the CCT was based remain unassailable.
The Senate President also alleged that there were forces in the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and collaborators outside the government who were bent on “pulling him down.”
