Supreme Court Fixes Thursday For Hearing On Saraki’s Appeal

Senate-president-Bukola-Saraki-CCTThe Supreme Court has picked Thursday, December 3 to hear the appeal filed by Senate President Bukola Saraki challenging the Code of Conduct Tribunal’s decision to try him over alleged false asset declaration charges.

The apex court’s decision to hear the appeal this week was contained in hearing notices sent to parties in the case.

It would be recalled that the Court of Appeal in a split decision of two-to-one, upheld the CCT’s jurisdiction to hear the charges brought against by the Code of Conduct Bureau, a decision he appealed at the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court had on November 12 directed the CCT to stay proceedings in the trial pending the determination of the appeal filed by Mr. Saraki.
