Saraki’s CCT Trial is no Big Deal, I Have a More Serious Case in Court – Sen. Ndume

Saraki1Nigeria’s senate leader, Senator Ali Ndume has stated that the trial of the Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, by Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), is being blown out of proportion.

According to him, his own trial on allegation of being a Boko Haram sponsor, is not getting the kind of attention Saraki’s trial by the CCT is receiving.

“The President of the Senate is in court for assets declaration but I am in court for a more serious issue that I am alleged to be a sponsor of Boko Haram

“I have been in court for four years so why is it not an issue.

“I have not complained, it is not a big deal. I am still the Leader of the Senate and my role is as important as that of the President of the Senate but it is not a big deal.

“Why are you making his own case a big deal? I think the Nigerian press trivializes things, dramatises issues, and concentrates on events and personalities instead of ideas: does that help us?”
