The motion filed by Senate President Bukola Saraki to dismiss his trial has been dismissed by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT). Saraki is facing a 16-count charge bordering on false declaration of assets.

Bukola Saraki CCT trial

Saraki had earlier filed a suit to restrain the CCT and the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) from proceeding with his corruption trial. He also filed a motion to disqualify Justice Danladi Umar from presiding over the hearing.


In the suit, the applicant sought a declaration that the plan to resume the trial of the embattled senator at the CCT is a breach of his fundamental right to fair hearing as guaranteed by Section 36(1) of the 1999 Constitution.

This isn’t the first time the Senate President has filed a suit against the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB). He had even challenged his trial up to the Supreme Court and lost.

He has also lost past fundamental rights enforcement applications, the last being the one dismissed on April 15, 2016 by Justice Adamu Kafarati of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
