Senator Joseph Waku
The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has denied sending a representative to the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) to observe the ongoing trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki.
The forum said this wile reacting to Senator JKN Waku’s statement to the effect that he was mandated by the ACF to be an observer at the on-going Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) trial of Senator Saraki.
A statement signed by the Secretary General of the ACF, Col. JP Ubah, said at no time was a decision in that regard taken.
“The ACF wishes to state categorically that at no time did the ACF meet in any of its organs (the NWC, NEC, BOT) to discuss the issue of Senator Saraki’s ongoing trial by the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
“Hence the ACF did not send anybody to the CCT trial either as an observer or in any capacity. Therefore, the ACF totally dissociates itself from the statements credited to Senator JKN Waku. He is on his own. The ACF is non partisan, and it is not in its tradition to take sides or interfere with judicial processes,” he said.
