For Discharging Tinubu In Error, PDP Wants Code of Conduct To Immediately Arrest And Prosecute APC Leader

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos has called on the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) to immediately arrest and prosecute former governor of the state and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The call was hinged on recent revelation at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), that the former governor was discharged in error during his trial five years ago, over allegedly operating foreign accounts while serving as governor.

It was in the ongoing case of the Senate president, Bukola Saraki, where his counsel, Chief Kanu Agabi, urged the tribunal to discharge his client as it did to Tinubu, after the prosecuting counsel, Rotimi Jacobs stated that Tinubu was wrongly discharged and that the tribunal was misled in freeing the ex-governor.

In a statement by its publicity secretary, Taofik Gani, the Lagos PDP said, “We demand the immediate invitation, arrest and prosecution of Tinubu for violating the laws of the land and breaching public trust by operating several foreign accounts during his tenure as Lagos State governor between 1999 and 2007.”
