Saraki loses bid to stop his CCT trial
Senate President Bukola Saraki this morning lost his bid to
stop CCT from going on with his trial. Justice Abdul
Kafarati of the federal high court, Abuja, dismissed Saraki’s
Fundamental Human rights suit challenging the jurisdiction
of the Code of Conduct Tribunal to try him over alleged
false declaration of assets while he was Governor of Kwara
state.
Justice Kafarati dismissed Saraki’s suit stating it lacked in
merit.
“It appears to me all that the applicant is trying to
do is to stop his criminal trial at CCT. The CCT is a
competent court to try the criminal matters,” he
held.
This court cannot interfere with the case at the
tribunal which has power to try cases. It is not
appropriate for the applicant to approach this court.
This case is hereby dismissed.”the judge said
