Saraki made this known in a series of tweets posted on his official Twitter handle, @bukolasaraki on Wednesday.
Saraki said, “Today, the Code of Conduct Tribunal discharged and acquitted me on a case of false declaration of assets, which started in September 2015. I maintained that I will clear my name. The conclusion of this trial has vindicated my position.”
”With the outcome of this case, our faith is renewed in our courts. Our hope is restored that the judiciary in our country could indeed provide sanctuary for all those who seek justice.
“I thank the Almighty Allah, the ultimate Judge and the repository of all powers. He alone has brought about this victory. I am immensely grateful to all my colleagues in the National Assembly for their abiding support.
“All through my trial, they demonstrated their strong conviction about the choice we all decided to make two years ago. I thank members of my family for their unflinching support
“I thank all friends and supporters back home in Kwara State and across the length and breadth of our country for their prayers and their sacrifices.
“My gratitude also goes to all members of my legal team for their tireless efforts to ensure the cause of justice is served.
“We must celebrate the fact that we are building a country where the innocent need not be afraid. I harbour no grudge against anyone regardless of the role they might have played in the persecution that I endured for the last two years.
“Again, I thank my colleagues at the 8th Senate. Despite the distractions of my trial, we have achieved more than the previous Senate.
“Now that this distraction is over the Senate can even achieve so much more. We must deliver the expectations of all Nigerians and show that the 8th Senate can help to improve the quality of lives of our people.
“Finally, I would like to thank all the gentlemen of the press for their abiding interest in this case. You all contributed in no small measure in ensuring that truth and reason ultimately prevailed,” he said.
