The Code of Conduct Tribunal has adjourned its case against Senate President Bukola Saraki to November 5th and 6th, 2015.
Bear in mind, the senate president is facing a 13-count criminal charge bordering on false declaration of assets preferred against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau before the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
The adjournment is coming on the heels of a pending judgment of the appeal court on the trial of Saraki.
While Saraki’s lawyer, Mahmud Magaji, prayed that the trial should be adjourned sine die, the prosecuting counsel, Rotimi Jacobs, argued the tribunal to adjourn the trial out of respect for the appeal court, which reserved judgment on the suit filed by the Senate President to stop his trial for alleged false declaration of assets.
Umar, objected the prayer of Saraki’s counsel, saying the he (Saraki) might “go and relax” as he gave a two-week time-off.
