Senate President, Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on March 24, 2016.

This was disclosed by the Chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, who spoke on behalf of the parties, at a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, April 27, 2016.

“We want to put it on record that we are solidly behind President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption; a fight that we believe is crucial to the survival of our country,” he said according to Punch.

“We however wish to note that this is not the first time that a President of this country would be declaring a war against corruption. In fact, the reason corruption is still a primary issue for the Buhari administration is that previous attempts have not been as successful as they should be," he added.

The political parties also urged the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Danladi Umar, who’s presiding over Saraki’s trial, to step aside due to allegations of bias levelled against him.
