The Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has hailed the victory of president of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

Mr. Okowa said in a statement in Asaba on Wednesday by his chief press secretary, Charles Aniagwu, said “Saraki’s long and tortuous trial was victory for democracy and rule of law”.

Mr. Okowa said it was obvious the case against Mr. Saraki was a “distraction to governance”, but expressed gladness that the Senate did not allow the trial to hinder its performance.

He said Mr. Saraki’s victory depicted that the judiciary remains the bastion of hope for everyone seeking redress and added that he is glad Senator Saraki has been vindicated.

“This judgement is good for our democracy as it will further enhance Nigerians’ faith in the judiciary.’’ the governor said.

While congratulating Mr. Saraki, Mr. Okowa challenged the Senate President and members of the National Assembly to always protect the rule of law and fundamental rights of Nigerians.
