Part of the statement read: “The tribunal’s itinerant session helps to clear up backlogs of cases in the zone within the period of the session.

“It also makes legal services at the door step of the defaulters, particularly the low-ranking public officers and as well serves as a means of publicising the activities of the tribunal within the zone.

“The essence is to further strengthen relationship between CCT and the hosting state, whose infrastructure and other logistics would be used for the session.’’

High profile cases ongoing at the CCT include that of the former minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godsday Orubebe, and Senate, President , Dr Bukola Saraki.
