Sagay bitter over failure to influence CCT judgement against my boss – Saraki’s aide

The Senate President’s senior adviser on new media, Bamikole Omisore has accused the chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof Itse Sagay of attempting to illegally influence the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) judgement against Saraki.

Omisore who tagged the anti-corruption crusade led by Sagay as ‘Fighting corruption with Ilegality’ noted that the victory of Saraki at the CCT doesn’t seat well with PACAC chair.

In a series of tweets he posted on his official Twitter handle, the Senate President’s media aide,  accused Sagay of attempting to illegally influence the CCT judgement against Saraki.



Buttressing his point, he also shared an audio tape which he claimed was the voice of Sagay, boasting that he made contact with the CCT judge as regards Saraki’s trial.


Meanwhile, Prof Itse Sagay who is obviously frustrated with the Federal Government’s loss of anti-corruption cases in court, has gone beyond heaping the blames on the judiciary and National Assembly to extend it to the Presidency.

Speaking at the weekend Sagay, blamed the Presidency for lack of diligence and thorough job on how to nail corrupt people, which he says, is part of why the government has continued to lose such cases.

He added, “So, all this ‘arrangee’ between the judiciary, the legislators, and people are saying, ‘We don’t want the APC to be destroyed, Saraki is our own, let us settle our own, party supremacy is better’, we must moderate that.”

Following the Senate President Bukola Saraki’s acquittal by the CCT and several other graft cases the Federal Government has lost, there have been concerns over the government’s dexterity in prosecuting such graft cases.
