Nigerians have gone on Twitter to unanimously condemn the decision by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) to drop all eighteen charges of false declaration of assets against Senate President, Olusola Saraki.
While some of the comments focused on Saraki himself most of the comments on Twitter seized the opportunity to condemn the government’s anti corruption program.
Let's not act like the whole Saraki vs Buhari CCT charade wasn't dead on arrival.

Now that Saraki has been discharged (as expected) can we bury this charade of an anti-corruption war & focus on the economy?

Tinubu is a thief and looter
Saraki is a thief and looter
Both acquitted of wrongdoings by the CCT but you are only angry about Saraki? LOL

You guys are angry Saraki was acquitted, Dino is misbehaving, Buhari is at large, Kemi is incompetent. Last time I checked, they're all APC

If you ever had any doubts that the Buhari Presidency is dead & buried, the CCT judgement in favour of Saraki is all the proof you need

The same CCT that freed Bola Tinubu today freed Bukola Saraki. If I were an armed robber, I would insist on being tried there. pic.twitter.com/x4zjgJ4DHy

The only reason Bukola Saraki won't be President is cos he isnt from the core North. But hands down, he is Nigeria's most tactful politician
