Judge Withdraws From Saraki's Suit Over Alleged Bribe

Justice Abdul Kafarati of the Federal High Court, Abuja, has withdrawn from a fundamental rights suit filed by Senate President Bukola Saraki, to crush the charges of false declaration of assets brought against him by the federal government at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).




Kafarati explained that his integrity had been called into question in the matter, hence his decision to disqualify himself from it.

According to him, his decision comes on the heels of a report on an online publications accusing him of corruption to the tune N2bn..
Kafarati belives that if he ruled against or for Saraki his decision would be interpreted differently.

He said:“A publication made allegations against my person, alleging that I have been compromised with N2bn. They also alleged that I am known in the legal cycle for being susceptible to corruption.


“What this has done is to put my integrity to question and they know that what they said is not true. They just derive ‎pleasure when they malign the integrity of a judicial office.

“It is unfortunate that we don’t have the appropriate laws to take care of this. As it stands, I am caught between two devils, if the ‎judgment goes in favour of Saraki now they will say that I have been compromised, on the other hand, if it goes against him they will say I have been intimidated.

“In light of the allegation, the right and appropriate thing to do is to disqualify myself and return the case-file to the Chief Judge for re-assignment to another Judge.“It is only in this country that people can wake up and start calling people names.“In the circumstance, I disqualify myself from this case. I will hereby send the case file to the chief judge for re-assignment to another judge.”


Kafarati had fixed Tuesday, March 22, for judgment on Saraki’s suit but instead of delivering the judgment, he announced his withdrawal from the case.

That is why that social media bill should be passed. Now this has caused justice to be delayed and the integrity of a judge is questioned.

Buhari's administration has brought our judicial setup to ridicule.

Impunity rules the day......

Like a wise judge would do:him just waka to preserve the Lil integrity he's got left.

Kafarati,u are a fool,I think you do not fit in at all.u need go back to school cuz can't imagine you(justice) for that matter,making such statement.you can't even follow the judicial preceedent even if ur brain is empty

Mitchew

Anyway,it is in dis country, a man is free to steal 5bn and the govt will say it is not stealing but corruption and where an ordinary man will dupe is fellow being of 2000 and be sent to jail.

Did you even read the text or you just commented based on headline?? What he did was the best thing soiy won't be said he delivered judgment based on the fact that he was compromised...

I applaud him for this. It was the honorable thing to do if u cherish ur integrity that u so worked hard for. Cos in Nigeria it takes just a second for them to undermine and belittle all you stand for. Esp when it has to do with politics. He said, she said, they said, would be the order of the day. He is a very wise man

On the contrary, I think it is in this dispensation that the judicial system became more proactive. I think that people now have a little bit of respect for the rule of law unlike before that we carried on with so much impunity... Although convictions are yet to take place, but the courts are more busy now

Huh?

Yemi7up said...

If he is sure he will only do what is right he need not to withdraw from the case. People will always talk he should do his job. Will he continue to run away from cases like this where the politician is running away from justice, he need to rise up and join the nation to stop the likes of Saraki running to court to stop them from been prosecuted even when they have questions to answer.
