Saraki resumes trial, arrives CCT in company of 81 senators

?Senate President Bukola Saraki is currently at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) where his trial for alleged false declaration of assets is continuing.

 

The senate president arrived in company of 81 senators, including Ike Ekweremadu, deputy senate president; Dino Melaye, Samuel Anyanwu and Stella Oduah.

 

Chuks Okocha, spokesman of the senate president, confirmed that the senators, who arrived in four buses were 81 in all.

 

Saraki arrived at the court a few minutes before 10am, and quickly sat on the second row of seats in the audience. ?He sat beside Aliyu Ndume, senate leader, whom he intermittently conversed with.

 

The senate president appeared unruffled?.

 

It will be recalled that the first time the senate president was in court was on September 22, after an order for his arrest by the CCT. Although he came to the tribunal voluntarily, he had sought to stop his trial at the high court and appeal court, but failed.

Saraki had pleaded? not guilty to a 13-count charge of false declaration of assets, and had said he was on trial because he emerged senate president against the wish of his party.
