Appeal Court has adjourned Senator Bukola Saraki’s election tribunal case indefinitely. The Court of Appeal had fixed October 19 to deliver judgment in the appeal filed by Senate President, Bukola Saraki challenging his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
Saraki is facing trial at the CCT on charges of alleged false declaration of his assets.
On 16 October, Justice Moore Adumein, who led two other justices of the court, fixed the date for judgment after entertaining arguments from counsel to parties in the suit.
The presiding Judge struck out an application by Saraki praying for a stay of further proceedings at the tribunal. The Judge said the court was compelled to do that because the grounds on which the prayers rested had been overtaken with the hearing of the substantive matter.
