Saraki’s CCT Trial Adjourned Till 18 March As He Storms Court With 30 Senators by Ohammadike: 11:34am On Mar 11, 2016
Senate President, Bukola Saraki on Friday appeared at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) for his ongoing trial over alleged false declaration of assets. Saraki arrived CCT at about 9:56am in company of about 30 senators. Prominent among the 84 senators who stormed the CCT in solidarity with the senate president are , Sen. Ike Ekweremadu, Ben Murray-Bruce, Dino Melaye, Stella Oduah, Samuel Anyanwu.

Recall that the Senate President is expected to be confronted by witnesses who will testify that he lied in the assets declaration forms he submitted to the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB during his eight years tenure as governor of Kwara State. In the 13-count charge of false assets declaration filed against the Senate President at Tribunal on September, 2015, CCB had alleged that he made false claims in the four assets declarations forms he submitted on his assumption and exit from office at different times between 2003 and 2011. Specifically, the Senate President was in the 13 counts charge alleged to have corruptly acquired many properties while in office as Governor of Kwara State.

According to CCB some of the assets traced to him at the end of his tenure as governor were not declared in the assets declaration forms he filled and submitted on assumption of office. Similarly, Saraki was accused of making anticipatory declaration of assets as some of the assets he listed as belonging to him upon his assumption of office as governor was discovered to have been acquired later.

The prosecution and the defence counsel have agreed on next Friday, March 18 for the argument of the motion on jurisdiction of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) to try Senate President Bukola Saraki on a charge of alleged false asset declaration slammed on him by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB)

President of the CCT, Danladi Umar, asked the defence to ensure that he served all motions and processes on the prosecution counsel to avoid further delay of the trial. He therefore adjourned the case to Friday, March 18, 2016, for moving of the motion and possible hearing of the substantive matter. The Senate President sat in the dock as the lawyers prosecution and the defence exchanged arguments

Yet that is their hero.

They will never defend themselves but keep looking for injunction about jurisdiction.

I wish Buhari came back as a Military Officer. All this nonsense bails granted and stylish delay of court proceeding won't be.

Supreme court already rulled on jurisdiction so wht is the nonsense application about ? angry angry

Why is it that these people are fond of supporting corruption?

Stealer Oduah still has an existing corruption case with the EFCC and yet she is aligning herself with a SP that is not even a member of her party.

Where are my people supporting corruption? The other day, thousands of Igbo men came out to support Saraki, a SP that has lost all credibility.

Re: Saraki’s CCT Trial Adjourned Till 18 March As He Storms Court With 30 Senators by 1United1: 11:55am On Mar 11, 2016
Which Jurisdiction again.

OK Better!

Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, succeeded in stopping  his trial on charges of false assets declaration before the Code of Conduct Tribunal from taking off on Friday.

The trial was scheduled to commence on Friday, but Saraki’s new lead counsel, Chief Kanu Agabi (SAN)‎, informed the Danladi Umar-led tribunal that he had filed a motion which he said must be heard before trial could commence.

But the lead prosecuting counsel, Mr. Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), described the motion as “a deliberate attempt to stop the trial from going on”.

“The defendant keeps saying that there is no case against him and that he is being persecuted. Why doesn’t he let the trial start so that the whole world can see the persecution?” Jacobs asked. The prosecutor, who said he had not been served with the motion, insisted that by virtue of the judgment of the Supreme Court delivered on February 5 which validated the trial, the day’s business was for the prosecution to open  its case.

He added that by virtue of section 396 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015, even if the motion was heard, ruling on it could only be delivered along with the judgment in the case.

‎But Agabi, who apologised for the erroneous service of his motion on the Federal Ministry of Justice instead of the prosecution, said since his motion was challenging the jurisdiction of the tribunal, it must be heard before going into the substantive case.

Jacobs later accepted service of the motion in open court and the tribunal chairman resolved that the two parties should exchange other processes in relation to the motion before March 18‎.

The tribunal fixed March 18 for the hearing of the motion, adding that ruling on it would be deferred and trial would commence on the same day.

‎Saraki, was accompanied to the Friday’s proceedings by about 40 senators.

Some of the prominent senators who were at the tribunal included, Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, Stella Oduah, Danjuma Goje, Samuel Anyanwu, Tayo Alasoadura, Ben Bruce, Shehu Sani, Hope Uzodima and Dino Melaye.

Very soon, it will become clear that both parties in this matter are just playing a game; a game of chess.

Saraki is too big to go down like that. Too many powerful people are invested in him and they don't want him to lose
