CCT delivers judgment against Saraki

The Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, has on Thursday, March 24, ruled that it has jurisdiction to hear the case against the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, for allegedly declaring false assets while he was Governor of Kwara State.

The Senate President had raised objections about the jurisdiction of the Tribunal to try him during its last sitting.

The federal government is being represented in the case by Rotimi Jacobs, while Kanu Agabi, is leading 80 other lawyers in Saraki’s defence.

In the charges instituted by the federal government, the Senate President is being accused of making false assets declaration in his forms submitted to the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB, as a two-term governor of Kwara State between 2003 and 2011.
