19 registered political parties yesterday called on the Tribunal Chairman, Justice Danladi Umar, to step down from the trial of the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki.
According to Guardian, the political parties alleged that the tribunal chairman had failed to demonstrate a dispassion that is required of anyone sitting in judgment over others.
National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdusalam, said that the trial of Saraki at the CCT has serious implications for the survival of democracy and the present administration’s fight against corruption.
He noted that one of the major obstacles in the fight against political corruption over the years is the way and manner it has been fought with the impression that the fight is selective and targeted only at perceived enemies of government.
According to him: “Once an anti-corruption is perceived as politically-motivated, the entire war against corruption gets reduced to a means of settling political scores rather than genuine commitment to fighting corruption.
