Politics Saraki Urges Supreme Court To Halt CCT Proceeding



The Senate President, Dr. Olubukola Saraki, yesterday, approached the Supreme Court, urging it to stop the proceeding of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT before the full blown commencement of the trial on 13-count criminal charge against him by the Federal Government.


Saraki, is praying the apex court to set aside the judgment of the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal which had on October 30, okayed the criminal charge against him.

He urged the Supreme Court to halt further proceeding on the allegation against him pending the determination of the appeal he formally lodged before it yesterday.

In the appeal he filed through his team of lawyers led by Mr. J.B. Daudu, SAN, a copy of which was sighted by Vanguard, last night, Saraki, specifically sought for:

“An order staying further proceedings in Charge No: CCT/ABJ/01/2015 between Federal Republic of Nigeria vs Dr. Olubukola Abubakar Saraki fixed for hearing on November 5 and 6, 2015 pending the determination of the appeal pending before the Supreme Court against the judgment of the Court of Appeal dated October 30, 2015.”
