Supreme Court Nullifies Bode George’s Conviction on Corruption Charges
Nine months after Abusidiqu.com published a report on the 7th of March, 2013 that the Federal Government through the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Bello Adoke has perfected plans to nullify the conviction of a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Chieftain, Chief Olabode George, a panel of judges at the Supreme Court of Nigeria, Friday finally succeeded in nullifying the conviction.
The court discharged and acquitted Mr. George claiming that the prosecutors at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had no evidence of Mr. George’s intention to commit fraud at the Nigeria Port Authority where he was caught presiding over a contract bazaar the bled the nation of Nigeria.
A panel of judges headed by a controversial judge, John Afolabi Fabiyi JSC, ruled that the charges of “contract splitting” upon which Mr. George was convicted is unknown to law.
With the nullification of the conviction of the Supreme Court today, the tag of an ex-convict will now be removed from Chief Bode Goerge and would now be in the best frame of mind to take on President Jonathan’s campaign battles in 2015 in the south west of Nigeria as we earlier stated in our March 7, 2013 report.
