CCT Trial: Saraki Heads To Supreme Court by dayo23: 12:45pm On Oct 30, 2015
Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki has stated that he will head to the Supreme Court in search of justice after a Court of Appeal ruled against him.

Saraki’s position was conveyed by his lead lawyer, Mohammed Mogaji. He revealed that Senator Saraki would file a further appeal at the Supreme Court.

Saraki wanted the appellate court stop his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, where he has been charged on 13-counts with false asset declaration.

Delivering judgment today, Justice Moore Agumanen, who read a majority verdict of the Court of Appeal morning upheld the trial of Senate President, Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

Reading the verdict of two of the three man panel, he said the tribunal, which docked the Senate President on 22 September and 21 October was properly constituted, thus trashing one of the grounds of the objections to the trial by Senate President and his lawyers.

The dissenting third judge, Justice Joseph Ekanem however ruled that Saraki’s appeal has merit.

On the contrary, the majority judges, including Justice Mohammed Mustapha, in their verdict said the tribunal led by Danladi Umar could sit with the chairman and one other member.

Agumanen said they relied on section 28 of the Interpretation Act to reach the decision.

He said the Code of Conduct Tribunal and Code of Conduct Bureau Act and the constitution did not talk about a quorum.

In a further blow to the Senate President, the majority judges said the CCT has criminal jurisdiction, though limited.

The judges also ruled that the Code of Conduct Tribunal has powers to issue a bench warrant.

The court further ruled that the solicitor-general can institute proceedings in the absence of the attorney-general since the office of the AGF is statutory and cannot die whether the AGF is in court or not.

Saraki wouldn't be fighting this hard if he is sure of beating the case.

Gradually he is ggoing to erode any public sympathy he has going for him..

Still don't understand some folks escessive & obsessive desire to amass illicit wealth..

Only the reward of HARD & HONEST LABOUR has no comma!!! smiley

Saraki trying to evade justice. he keeps dragging the case.

Anyway, that's the trick. He'll probably last a 4 year tenure as long as there is always the option of Appeal. Moreover, he can always appeal the verdict of the CCT on the case, even up to the Supreme court if I'm not mistaken

Why many bloggers failed,
Is this true that those who blog for passion makes money while those that blog for money earn nothing? Is it true that money comes after blogging and not money comes before blogging?
Many bloggers wanted to earn money online and not to blog, this is the problem with most new bloggers. New bloggers came into blogosphere with the passion to make money and once they fail to achieve this at the first try, they will quit blogging and what has happened they have failed as a blogger.
Blogging is like any other business; you either invest your

The logic is if in an objective exams(shading) you score 10/60 with the marking scheme given to the teacher, even if you give the script to a new born baby you will still get the same thing.

Bukola Saraki and the apc, APC Crises

Apc crises
Why the trouble in the ruling all progressive congress, will apc be better than the people’s Democratic Party. In 1999 when Nigerian came under democracy the ruling party then pdp, was very much united and the party body as the final say unlike what we are now seeing in the all progress congress. The whole senate president is n mess with his party chieftain and the presidency continue to play I don’t care attitude.
We all know what tore the people democratic party, it was internal crises, in fact most Nigerians know that pdp was the problem of pdp and pdp destroy itself,. If without the contribution of key pdp figures like Rotimi Ameachi, former vice president, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Rabilu Musa Kwankwaso, the then new pdp senators and members of the lower chamber, the contribution of the g7 governors as well continue reading
