The Code of Conduct Tribunal has dismissed the False Assets declaration charges against Senate President, Bukola Saraki

The Senator had filed a no case submission after no case submission after the defense had closed its case against him.

The no case submission means that he is not opening a defence, and asking the tribunal to discharge him because there is no case against him.

The request was accepted by the Tribunal.

In his ruling, Tribunal Chairman, Danladi Umar said the defence failed to prove its case against the accused.

Saraki was facing charges for false declaration of asset while he was governor of Kwara state.

The charges were originally 13 but the government amended it to 18 earlier this year.
