The immediate past deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Timi Frank, has reacted to the victory of the Senate President , Bukola Saraki at the Supreme Court.
The Bayelsa-born politician lauded the performance of the judiciary, especially the Supreme Court judges.
Daily Post reports, the Supreme Court on Friday morning, discharged Senate President Saraki, freeing him of corruption charges brought against him at the code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, by the APC-led Federal Government.
The apex court, in its ruling delivered by Justice Centus Nweze, held that the decision of the court of Appeal holding that a prima facie case was made against Saraki is “the juridical equivalent of a forensic somersault and the court cannot lend its support to a caricature of justice.
“Judgement of the Court of Appeal is hereby vacated and in its place an order that Saraki is hereby discharged and his appeal allowed,” the apex court ruled.
Reacting to the judgment, Frank, in a statement he signed and made available to Daily Post on Friday, noted that the saying that: “a lie may go on for twenty years but truth will appear one day” has come to play, adding that God of justice has put “enemies of justice to shame”.
According to Frank, it has now been proven beyond reasonable doubt that the manufactured CCT case was a complete witch-hunt against the person of Saraki.
While thanking the judiciary for not allow itself to be used against Saraki, the APC chieftain said the verdict will make the Senate President to concentrate on the job he was elected to do.
“All the antics of the presidency and some APC leaders have finally come to an end. They did everything possible to bring down Saraki as Senate President but God did not allow them. We thank the God of Justice and we hope that henceforth, people will learn not to fight the God’s anointed man,” he also said.
While congratulating Saraki for his victory at the apex court, Frank thanked all Nigerians, political leaders across board and majority of Senators for their prayers and support for he Senate President while the case lasted.
