BUKOLA Saraki, Senate president, has expressed disappointment over the judgment of the Supreme Court delivered on his case on Friday in Abuja.
A panel of seven justices of the apex court had in a unanimous decision, ruled that Saraki should go and face his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
But Saraki, in his reaction contained in a statement signed by Yusuph Olaniyonu, his special adviser on media and publicity, said he was disappointed with the verdict.
“He, however, will like to put it on record that the facts of the substantial matter are not before the Supreme Court since the apex court was only invited to rule on some preliminary issues in the process of commencing the trial,” the statement said.
Nevertheless, the Senate president expressed confidence that he would be vindicated the trial proper, adding: “He assures everyone that at the end of the day truth will prevail and justice will be served.”
