Politics Orubebe Discharged and Acquitted of False Asset Declaration



The Abuja Court of Appeal has nullified the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT's ruling which found former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Orubebe guilty of false asset declaration.

In a unanimous judgement, a three-man panel of Justices of the appellate court voided the ruling that Orubebe falsely declared his assets in 2007.

Led by Justice Mohammed Abdul Aboki, the court said it voided Orubebe’s conviction on the premise that the CCT verdict occasioned a miscarriage of justice against him.

Orubebe had in his Notice of Appeal marked CA/A/633c/2016, urged the appellate court to not only set-aside judgment the Justice Danladi Umar-led tribunal delivered against him on October 4, 2016, but to equally discharge and acquit him of the charge.
