‘I thank God, my legal team’

Former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) has reacted to the verdict of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) which discharged and acquitted him of charges the Code of Conduct Bureau brought against him.  Below is the full text of the reaction: I thank God for today and for this judgment in my favour.  Today’s verdict shows there is still hope for this country.  That the judiciary can still dispense justice with judges on the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).  They are courageous judges who dispensed justice without fear or favour.  I thank my legal team, led by the indefatigable Wole Olanipekun, SAN, for their brilliant work.  I am happy this has come to an end.  The attempt to rubbish my name based on unsubstantiated charges, as I said, would fail.  After my time in political office, I should enjoy my rights of going into personal business.  I will, however, take appropriate actions after consultations with my team because my reputation was smeared and the lives of my wife and daughters were disrupted.  In fact, my daughter’s account with just 3, 500 Pound Sterling was closed in London because of these unproven allegations:  a young girl and her banking transactions stopped.  Today’s judgment opens a new chapter in the dispensation of justice for our country.  No one should ever be judged guilty of flimsy charges again.
