The trial of Senate President Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has been adjourned as the prosecution and the defence counsel have agreed on next Friday, March 18 for the argument of the motion on jurisdiction of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

Saraki, it was learnt, arrived the court in company of the Deputy senate president Ike Ekweremadu, Ben Murray Bruce, Stella Oduah, Hope Uzodinma, Shehu Sani, Dino Melaye, and Sam Anyanwu among others.
Saraki is currently facing 13 counts of alleged false assets declaration slammed on him by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
The Danladi Umar-led tribunal held that the defence should ensure that he served all motions and processes on the prosecution counsel to avoid further delay of the trial.
He therefore adjourned the case to Friday, March 18, 2016, for moving of the motion and possible hearing of the substantive matter.
Meanwhile, the embattled Senate President has said his trial at the CCT was a product of political mischief.
