Senate President, Bukola Saraki, in court as corruption trial resumes

Image for the news resultSenate President Bukola Saraki has arrived the Code of Conduct Tribunal where he is facing charges of alleged false asset declaration and corruption.
Mr. Saraki’s bid to thwart the trial failed after the Supreme Court ruled that the tribunal had powers and was properly constituted to hear the case against Mr. Saraki, a former governor of Kwara State.
Last Friday, the tribunal adjourned the case by a week.
The tribunal took the decision after Mr. Saraki’s new lawyer, Kanu Agabi, asked the judges to rule first on the senate president’s objection to the powers of the tribunal to try him.
Mr. Saraki arrived the tribunal at 9: 54 am on Friday.
