Saraki: Code Of Conduct Tribunal Adjourns To Nov

Bukola SarakiThe Code of Conduct Tribunal sitting in Abuja on Wednesday adjourned hearing in the trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki for alleged false assets declaration.

At the commencement of the trial today, the lead prosecuting counsel, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), traced the history of the case at the court of appeal.

Mr. Jacobs lamented how the appellate court fixed October 19 for the judgment, but when they arrived on Monday for the judgment, they were told it was not ready and no date was fixed.

After the two sides presented their arguments, the tribunal let both sides pick date for resumption of the hearing.

Both counsels to Mr. Saraki and the lead prosecuting counsel agreed that hearing should be between November 5 and 6 in order to await the outcome of the decision of the Court of Appeal.

The tribunal chairman, Justice Danladi Umar, subsequently adjourned hearing to November 5 and 6.
