Tribunal set to rule on Saraki’s non-appearance in court

21 September 2015, 14:45Lekan Oladeinde

Abuja - The Code of Conduct Tribunal has adjourned proceedings till Tuesday to enable it decide on the ‘propriety and impropriety’ of the absence of Senate President, Bukola Saraki in court.

Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Umar Danladi, after listening to the submissions of Saraki’s lawyer, Joseph Daudu said the adjournment was to enable the court decide the next line of action against Saraki.

Saraki is facing a 13-count charge bordering on alleged corruption and false declaration of assets levelled against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

The tribunal issued a bench warrant against the Senate President on Friday.

Daudu, who had on Friday told the tribunal to produce Saraki in court, told the court on Monday that he could only advise Saraki to appear.

He stated that Saraki as an adult has the right to accept or reject his advise.

Both the tribunal members and lawyers involved in the case argued back and forth on various issues bordering on the matter.

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja had earlier on Monday stopped the proposed arrest of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, by the tribunal.
