Published:11 Mar, 2016
The Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki has been docked and trial is expected to commence before the Code of Conduct Tribunal on a 13 count charge of alleged false assets declaration.
The Danladi Umar-led tribunal subsequently fixed Thursday for the commencement of the trial, but it later shifted the date to Friday, following a request by Dr. Saraki’s new lead counsel, Mr Kanu Agabi (SAN).
In the charges instituted by the Federal Government, Dr. Saraki was accused of making false assets declaration in his forms submitted to the Code of Conduct Bureau as a two-term Governor of Kwara State between 2003 and 2011.
