Code Of Conduct Tribunal Fixes March 10 For Commencement Of Saraki’s Trial
The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has fixed March 10 for the continuation of the trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki.
Spokesperson of the Tribunal, Ibrahim Alhassan confirmed the date on Friday.
The Tribunal had expressed happiness with the judgment of the supreme court dismissing the appeal of Saraki to stop his trial for alleged false declaration of assets.
“The trial will continue from where it stopped?. We just have to respect the judgment of the supreme court at that time it ruled we should stay action, and we did stay action. The expectation was for us to wait until the determination of the case which happened today, ” he had said.
“Certainly, I assure you the case will continue. What stalled it was the order of supreme court, but now it has given us the go ahead.
“We must be happy. It is all about the institution of the CCT, and not about an individual. If the judgment had gone the other way round, our jurisdiction would have been stunted?, and we will not have the capacity to continue with our tasks. Everybody should be happy, especially now that we are in the era of fighting corruption.”
