Appeal court strikes out Saraki’s appeal against CCT

by on October 27, 2016

The Court of Appeal in Abuja has again affirmed the jurisdiction of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) to try the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki on charges bordering on assets declaration breaches before the CCT.

In affirming the ruling of the CCT presided over by Justice Danladi Umar, which affirmed the tribunal’s jurisdiction, Justice Abdul Aboki held among others that contrary to Saraki’s contention, the Attorney-General of the Federation had the power to institute charges against him before the CCT.

Delivering judgment on Thursday in the appeal filed by Saraki, the Justice Aboki-led panel of the appeal court affirmed the CCT’s jurisdiction after dismissing the appeal filed by the Senate President challenging his trial before the tribunal.
