BREAKING: Appeal Court Upholds Saraki CCT’s Trial

By Ikenga Chronicles October 27, 2016

The embattled Senate President suffered a huge blow as the court of Appeal in Abuja affirmed the jurisdiction of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, to try him on charges bordering on assets declaration breaches before the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

Delivering judgment in the appeal filed by Saraki, the Justice Abdul Aboki-led panel of the appeal court on Thursday affirmed the CCT’s jurisdiction after dismissing the appeal filed by Saraki challenging his trial before the tribunal.

All the four other members of the panel unanimously agreed with the lead judgment delivered by Justice Aboki‎ who resolved all the eight issues formulated for determination against Saraki.

It was gathered that the National Assembly was thrown into confusion over the judgement
