Senate summons CCT judge over Saraki’s trial

19 April 2016, 10:11

Abuja - The Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions yesterday summoned the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, Chairman Justice Danladi Umar.

The summon is believed to be linked with the Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s ongoing trial over false declaration of assets.

The invitation was contained in a letter signed by the Clerk of the Committee, Freedom Odolo.

In the letter, the Senate demanded Umar to appear before it unfailingly by 2pm on Thursday.

This is coming a day after Umar ruled that Saraki’s trial will be on a daily basis.

The committee said, “Your letter with reference number CCT/HQ/ 126/S/ 111/ 515 dated 1st April, 2016 in which you requested for more time to enable you attend the hearing was received.

The Senate’s invitation‎ of the CCT judge is coming after repeated efforts by Mr. Saraki to halt his trial had failed.

Last Friday, a Federal High Court in Abuja dismissed his application asking ‎the court to nullify his trial at the CCT.
