17 Political Parties Gang Up To Remove CCT Chairman

Justice Umar

17 registered political parties yesterday called on the chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Danladi Umar, to step down from the ongoing trial of the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, as they allege that the chairman has failed to demonstrate a dispassion that is required of anyone sitting in judgment over other.

While briefing newsmen yesterday in Abuja, 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.

“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.
