On Wednesday, Yusuph Olaniyonu, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, in a statement, said the trial of Saraki over asset declaration issues which is now before both the Supreme Court and the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) was never part of the discussions over the grievances of the nPDP leaders.

He said: “Issues discussed between the nPDP and the APC leaderships are beyond personal matters.

“Dr. Saraki will want it known that he is not interested in any settlement of the asset declaration case outside the judicial process.

“He is confident that the court will give him justice and he will be exonerated of all charges as can be seen by the verdicts of the CCT and the Court of Appeal. In fact, he maintains his earlier position that the trial was politically and maliciously motivated.

“The Senate President’s only concern is that all interested parties should allow the judiciary to freely and fairly decide on the issues before it. Dr. Saraki believes in the rule of law, independence of the judiciary and ability of the court to adjudicate on all matters.

“The Senate President has consistently exhibited a strong belief that nobody should compromise national interest with personal issues.

“And this has guided his actions, conduct and utterances in the performance of his official duties in the last three years, despite the persistent persecution and intimidation directed at him.”
