Bukola SarakiThe Supreme Court on Thursday set February 5, 2016 date for judgment in Senate President Bukola Saraki’s appeal against his trial at the Code of conduct Tribunal.

Saraki is facing 13 count charges bordering on false assets declaration at the tribunal when he as governor of Kwara state in 2003.

The Supreme Court had ordered the tribunal to halt the trial pending the determination of Saraki’s appeal.

The Public Relations Officer of the tribunal, Mr Ibraheem Alhassan who made the announcement on November 23 had said the decision to suspend hearing was to show due respect to the apex court’s directive for stay of proceedings.

“The case was slated for hearing on Nov. 23, but as a mark of respect for the apex court, the tribunal decided to tarry a while pending the determination of Saraki’s appeal challenging the jurisdiction of the tribunal to try him”, he said.

NAN recalls that Justice John Fabiyi, leading a five-man panel of justices of the apex court, ordered the Justice Danladi Umar-led tribunal to suspend further hearing in the matter.

Fabiyi held that the stay of proceeding was to enable the apex court hear and determine the substantive appeal brought by Saraki.
