The Code of Conduct tribunal has reserved ruling in the application, of No-Case Submission, filed by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

The Senate President,  had told the Tribunal, to dismiss the false assets declaration charges brought against him by the Federal Government on the ground that no case has been established against him.

He argued  that from the 18-count charges and all the  evidences brought by the prosecution witnesses, he had not been linked in anyway with the allegations against him.

His counsel, Kanu Agabi, specifically informed the Tribunal that he made a no case submission for his client because the charges against him were founded on faceless petitions.

He further asked   the Tribunal to dismiss the charges, so  as to discourage writers of faceless petitions.

But in opposition to the no case submission, counsel to the Federal Government, Rotimi Jacobs, insisted that a case has been established to warrant the defendant being called upon by the Tribunal to enter his defence in the charges against him.

Rotimi told the Tribunal that discharging the defendant at a no case point level will defeat the fight against corruption and purpose of the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
