Court Rules On Saraki’s Appeal Today

The Court of Appeal in Abuja will decide whether or not the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) could proceed with the trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki on charges of false asset declaration. The appellate court chose Monday for judgment in an appeal by Saraki, after taking arguments from parties in the case.

However, mixed reactions have continued to trail the arraignment of Saraki by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

Saraki, who was arraigned last month before the CCT on a 13-count charge of false asset declaration, is appealing the tribunal’s decision to assume jurisdiction over his trial.
