The Senate President Bukola Saraki was re-arraigned in the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT over false assets declaration.

Tuesday’s arraignment followed a ruling of the Abuja division of the Court of Appeal in December 2017 which dismissed 15 out of the 18-counts charges preferred against him in 2015.

It would recalled that the three member-panel, led by Justice Tinuade Akomolafe-Wilson, dismissed the 15 charges but asked Saraki to answer the remaining three. The panel ordered that the tribunal should try the Senate President again on count 4, 5 and 6.

The Senate President was accused of making false asset declaration at the end of his tenure as the governor as Kwara State in 2011.

Presiding judge, Justice Danladi Umar, adjourned the matter till February 27th for adoption of written address by both parties.
