Code Of Conduct Tribunal  Postpones Saraki’s Trial Again


The Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, has again adjourned the trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki, the fourth time in recent times, all at the instance of the prosecution team.

At the resumption of proceedings on Thursday, counsel to the federal government, Rotimi Jacobs, told the tribunal chairman, Danladi Umar, that his witness was not available as he had just undergone a surgery.

Umar granted his request for adjournment and fixed May 4 for continuation of hearing.

Recall that the case was initially slated for April 18, but was adjourned to April 25, and then to Thursday, 27, and now to May 4.

Saraki is standing trial on allegations of false assets declaration dating back to his days as the governor of Kwara State.

His trial which began in September 2015 has made no real progress as it has been one adjournment after another.

The Senate President risks forfeiting that said properties to the federal government if the charges against him are proven.
