Supreme Court To Rule On Saraki’s Appeal February 5

Supreme Court has fixed February 5 next year for judgment in the appeal filed by Senate President, Bukola Saraki, challenging his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

Saraki is facing a 13-count charge of alleged false declaration of assets at the CCT.

A seven-man panel, headed by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Mahmud Mohammed, chose the day a moment ago after listening to parties argued and adopted their briefs.

Saraki’s lawyer, Joseph Daudu (SAN), argued among others that the CCT lacked the requisite jurisdiction to try the Senate President and urged the court to allow the appeal.

The prosecution counsel, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), urged the court to dismiss the appeal and uphold the majority decision of the Court of Appeal.
