Mr. Michael Wetkast, an operative of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has revealed that the Senate President, Bukola Saraki acquired some Federal Government properties falsely.

Wetkast is also a key witness for the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), in the ongoing false declaration trial of the Senate President.

He also revealed that Saraki acquired some assets from the Presidential Implementation Committee on Sale of Federal Government Properties using his company name.

Reports say the rule of the committee requires an individual to only buy  one property.

Wetkast said “We invited the members of the Presidential Implementation Committee on Sale of Federal Government Properties. From our findings, one person is only allowed to acquire one property under the scheme. But the first defendant got three properties using his personal name and the name of his company.

“No15 Mcdonald Street, Ikoyi, was got in the name of the defendant’s company, Tiny Tee Limited and 17, 17A and 17B were got in his personal name.

“Exhibit P21 relates to Plot 2481 and 2482, Cadastrial Zone A06, Maitama, Abuja, otherwise known as 1 and 3 Targus Street, Maitama, Abuja. From Exhibit 21, they were acquired in 1993.

“From Exhibit 1, under Appendix 3 (details of landed property in Nigeria), I did not see the property.”

The witness also added that “The defendant did not declare Plot 2481 and 2482, Cadastrial Zone A06, Maitama, Abuja, on assumption of office in 2003. Neither did I see No 1 and 3 Targus Street, Maitama, Abuja, in the asset declaration form.

“Exhibit 3 is the asset declaration form in 2007. In 2007, the defendant declared 1 Targus Street, Maitama, Abuja. Number 3 was not declared.

“In the asset declaration form of 2011, No. 1 Targus, Musa Yar’ Adua was declared. He did not declare No 3 Targus Street, Maitama.”

Meanwhile, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), John Odigie-Oyegun has revealed that the possible removal of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, might be a sacrifical change.
