This would be the fourth court Saraki has run to since the tribunal began his arraignment.
An appeal court in Abuja had dismissed a similar petition last month and the Supreme Court has got a file from Saraki’s lawyers seeking to declare that the CCT cannot continue with the case; given all kinds of cited technicalities.
Senate president is currently facing trial at the CCT following a 13-count charge brought against him bordering on alleged corruption and false declaration of assets in 2003.
Drama happened at Saraki’s hearing yesterday as lawyers to Senate leader walked out on the two-man panel of the Code of Conduct Tribunal in Abuja in protest against a ruling that the trial of the helmsman of the National Assembly must continue despite his appeal against the judgment of the Court of Appeal which affirmed the jurisdiction of the tribunal to entertain the case.
