The Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, on Friday announced the continuation of the trail of Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki on November 5 following the favorable judgement of the Appeal Court.

Rotimi Jacobs, representing the federal government, who disclosed the notice to journalists in Abuja, said the CCT has been vindicated for the Saraki’s trial to continue.



    Earlier on Friday, Justice Moore Agumanen, upheld Saraki’s trial at the tribunal after reading a majority verdict of the Court of Appeal.

    Agumanen, said the tribunal was properly constituted, quashing one of the former Kwara state governor’s objections to the trial.

    In a minority opinion, Justice Joseph Ekanem, however, held that Saraki’s appeal has merit.

    The majority verdict, however, by the judges, including Justice Mohammed Mustapha, was that  the tribunal, led by Danladi Umar, could sit with the chairman and one other member.
