Saraki loses in bid to sack CCT Chair
« on: October 05, 2016, 08:47:37 PM »

Senate President, Bukola Saraki has lost in his bid to have the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Danladi Umar excused from his trial.

The CCT Chair, in a ruling this morning, refused Sarakiís application to that effect.
Saraki is being tried over alleged corruption and false assets declaration.

Saraki had asked Umar to recuse himself from the trial for allegedly making some prejudicial comments in the course of proceedings.

The tribunal said the allegation by Saraki was unfounded, spurious and based on speculation.

It adjourned to November 7 for continuation of trial.
